    Wow,

    Watch the video. seeing 2 B25s take off the deck of the Nimitz is something special.

    A big thank you to the US Navy and all the aircraft owners for making this happen.

    USA USA USA.

    Lon,

    Thank you so much for sharing this photo. Sure means a lot to me seeing that image.

    You can see the shadow of the B25, the USS Missouri and the sunken USS Arizona.

    It has been 79 years since she was sunk and interned 1102 sailers and marines.

    Just wonderful how we never forget and pay our respect to them.

    Thats one reason I fly my flag daily to thank all who served our great country.

    There is a post on bookface today that said the Bearcat had taxied into a fire extinguisher and that a T-6 had also been hit.
    It wasn't clear if the Bearcat hit the T-6 or the fire extinguisher had hit it.

    Either way two planes are reportedly grounded.

    More info;
    One blade torn out of the hub. Engine, prop and cowling on T-6 in bad shape. fire extinguisher he hit with the prop is destroyed. Nobody hurt.

    The three bladed Bearcat.
    Curious that they covered over the "Blue Angels" markings.?
