    Love the two Chipmunks!

    Is the Hawker Hunter restoration for full airworthy or just display?

    Paul, it's a MACCHI MB326H, it will eventually be fully restored.

    It fooled me although I thought the canopy lines didn't look right for a Hunter.

    thanks for the pics muffett.

    there is a T-6 and a stearman? (in naval colours) at the local airport that i see flying at least once every two weeks, but the sound of a BIG IC engine will still draw me out, looking at the sky, every time.

    back in the early 90's i was on a beach in the bush south of sydney when a single macchi came booting along just off shore at about 150 - 200' above sea level on a perfect summers day. the image will stay in my mind for ever.

    By the way, here is the Dragon Rapide at the local Military Aviation Museum.

    Beautiful! De Havilland aircraft certainly had graceful lines.

    Glides much better without WWII full load of guns, ammo, armor plate, old radios, and a full load of petrol, I suspect!

    Hi JM, you keep pretty quiet these days.
    Gotta admit it wasn't really much of a glide, engine cut when throttled back on landing approach, so just a normal landing minus power.
