    I have to guess its going to Santa Rosa or possibly the Nut Tree. I haven't heard anything about a new Corsair at Schellville. The Couches P51H is now based at Nut tree, so its possible that they are trying to entice more Warbirds there.

    Unless they just have it rounding the pylons stock they would need a lot of mods to really race it & I think those days are over. Just my opinion. It looks great as is.

    Bob,

    Yes, just to watch him fly and experience the sound is all me and my grandkids would expect. No race numbers needed.

    Come to Reno fly them low around the pylons!

    Gary lives in Santa Rosa and is the owner of Korbel Winery. The winery is located in Gurneville. Most likely choice would be storing it in Santa Rosa, he only lives a few miles from the Santa Rosa airport. He probably has it in Nevada for tax purposes like Vicky did with her P51 Mustang.

    Bingo, that's it. 90 days before bringing it back to CA

    In case he cruises by this site? Maybe I can get a invite whenever he's up here checking her out so I can drive over and take some shots.

    Some shots on the Stead ramp when she's leaving

    Gary has spent a lot of time racing cars but gave that up several ago. His cars still race but I am not sure who is behind the wheel. I donít think Gary will be racing as he is 72 years old. I think he might have a pilots license as his companies have several airplanes in their fleet.
