    Shawn you've made my day! I love to see formation flights from the "old'' days and remeber what it was like. Am I correct in guessing that these were taken at Mojave in 1976? If so, the pictures have captured one of the last flights of P-51D #33 Miss Suzy Q flown by Ken Burnstine which crashed fatally on June 6, 1976 at Mojave.

    Nope....my guess is that was taken at the PRPA pylon-racing seminar held at Mojave in 1973.

    It may not be as fast, but *MAN* don't Sea Furies just look "right" with 5 blades in the fan! That's not a question.

    Yeah, I agree. Someone needs to go to Nelson Ezell and have him utilize a Centaurus 5-blade hub, fitted with Skyraider blades...so it'll look right, AND turn the right way. :-)

    If anyone could do it, Nelson would be the guy.
