I see in Pana Trackers Thread that a few people like watching warbird displays, especially flying, not static.

I went to Temora in NSW last November. They fly about 5 or 6 weekends a year.

Absolutely fantastic. Where else would you see a formation of Spitfires, a Mustang and an F86 Sabre.

Highly recommended.

Nice snaps Stephen.
The Sabres came into Rocky regularly for refuelling years ago. Four were lined up and some fuel(kero) was spilt around one of the main wheels which softened the asphalt and down she went......bogged in the bitumen in other words.

A fellow aero club member was an ex RAAF LAME. He would talk of his experiences with this aircraft. Interesting dynamics would happen when the nose cannons were fired.
I think from memory the on board fuel tanks only had 40 min endurance total. They would often require a landing clearance with an announcement of minimum fuel.(no fuel for a go- round)

The Australian version had Avon turbines(pure torbo-jet) which were a RR product.

The P51 Mustang was the first fighter which had the range to escort the bombers over Germany.

Brings back a lot of memories. F86 Sabre belonged to 75 Squadron.
!st aircraft to break sound barrier in straight and level flight.
