    First, let me say that you have some great shots and it was a nice write up.

    Now....I'm curious....Why does everyone exclude mention or photos of the people who make it happen? Granted, the pilots are a vital part of the show. However, there are over 200 volunteers on the ground without whom, the airshow wouldn't happen!

    So....for all the volunteers at ALL airshows................

    THANKS!!!!!!!!!

    Yes, awesome story and pictures! Thanks to the Archers! Only a couple of VERY small errors however.

    In the article it states:

    "and the only known airworthy Grumman F3F 'flying barrel' piloted by Rob Paterson."

    There are actually 4 airworthy F3F's, although probably only 2 are flown on any kind of regular basis. Remember, Herb Tischler from the now defunct TAF made 4 of those replicas - all airworthy.

    Also it states:

    "Joining this group was Eddie Kurdziel flying his beautifully restored Fairey fly AS-6, one of only three flies in airworthy condition. "

    There used to be 3 up until the RNAF's fly crashed in a fatal airshow accident in England back around 2003 or so. There are now only 2 flyable in the world - the CWH's WH632, and Eddie Kurdziel's WB518.

    Other than these 2 minor details, AWESOME article!
