    Default "Warbirds" - or stockers you'd be thrilled to see....

    Just for fun;

    Which would be your top three Warbirds (or post-war era stockers) that you would enjoy seeing on the race course? Must be actual flying types, within the restored warbird community today.

    I've always dreamed of the Tigercat, well that's become a reality... So my three might be:

    Mk.XIV Spitfire - Was nice to witness at Phoenix...
    P-47 - Ditto to the above..
    Tempest/Typhoon

    Could go on and on...

    Mosquito......................any chance Rod Lewis will bring his newest warbird? Would love to see her on display at the Heritage Show or even making a few circuits around the course

    My #1 would be the only flying (I think it is) Supermarine Seafire. Love that plane. I would add the A-26 and Typhoon as well.

    I would enjoy to see the Seafire XV. I believe one was being restored in Canada.
    And my most prefered it would be the FW190 Dora.

    Thumbs up Re: "Warbirds" - or stockers you'd be thrilled to see....

    The Supermarine Mk47 Griffon mix-master Seafire flying out of Aspen, CO. (that was restored by Nelson Ezell in Breckenridge, TX a few years ago).

    Bell P-39 Airacobra (Rod Lewis' or the CAF/P-63 Kingcobra will do for a consolation)

    P-38 (Preferrably~ Lewis Air Legends' P-38F 'Glacier Girl')

    "PLEASE" & ~Thank you very-much!

    If we're REALLY gonna go crazy: A Dornier Do335! Like to see a Sabre-engined Tempest (just to hear the motor) and a Mosquito.
    Oh yeah:P-61

    P-61!!!! Now that would be amazing! Isn't there only one even close to flying right now? I wouldn't mind seeing it at an airshow let alone racing!

    I've heard rumblings of Clay Lacy's purple Mustang "Miss Van Nuys" as a possible visitor for the 50th, whether she is a ramp static entry or a stocker class entrant, either way it would be sssooo cool!

    Dawn patrol two ship with "Ole Yeller" on the ramp, perhaps
