Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Vought F4U-1D Corsair :

By V-J Day, September 2, 1945, Corsair pilots had amassed an 11:1 kill ratio against enemy aircraft. The aircraft's distinctive inverted gull-wing design allowed ground clearance for the huge, three-bladed Hamilton Standard Hydromatic propeller, which spanned more than 4 meters (13 feet). The Pratt and Whitney R-2800 radial engine and Hydromatic propeller was the largest and one of the most powerful engine-propeller combinations ever flown on a fighter aircraft.

Charles Lindbergh flew bombing missions in a Corsair with Marine Air Group 31 against Japanese strongholds in the Pacific in 1944. This airplane is painted in the colors and markings of the Corsair Sun Setter, a Marine close-support fighter assigned to the USS Essex in July 1944.

Transferred from the United States Navy.

Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Curtiss P-40E Warhawk (Kittyhawk IA):

Whether known as the Warhawk, Tomahawk, or Kittyhawk, the Curtiss P-40 proved to be a successful, versatile fighter during the first half of World War II. The shark-mouthed Tomahawks that Gen. Claire Chennault's "Flying Tigers" flew in China against the Japanese remain among the most popular airplanes of the war. P-40E pilot Lt. Boyd D. Wagner became the first American ace of World War II when he shot down six Japanese aircraft in the Philippines in mid-December 1941.

Curtiss-Wright built this airplane as Model 87-A3 and delivered it to Canada as a Kittyhawk I in 1941. It served until 1946 in No. 111 Squadron, Royal Canadian Air Force. U.S. Air Force personnel at Andrews Air Force Base restored it in 1975 to represent an aircraft of the 75th Fighter Squadron, 23rd Fighter Group, 14th Air Force.

Donated by the Exchange Club in Memory of Kellis Forbes.

The Family As Silhouette

This weekend we had our biannual family meeting in Brugge, Belgium. The main issue was - if there was one - how we can assure long term assets to the family business.

Cousin F. start talking about new media. And cousine K. got interested in my professional silhouette cutter and was thinking maybe we can all join up here.

She immediately jumped into position to show she has modelling qualities in the silhouette range. I do not disagree, but next session she should get rid of the bag.

Do You Think This Was A Sign Of Disrespect?

I recently saw a photo my friend Nancylynnfree posted on her wall. It
was of a hummingbird doing her business while in flight. I did not
know I had gotten this shot until we got home. I did remember this
osprey lifting its behind at us, and thought it was mooning us in bird
fashion. Little did I know, I had caught it doing more than that.
Nancy, this one is for you to enjoy, as you shared yours with all of
us, to get a kick out of as well. Lets see who else shares these
shots. Enjoy getting the laughs God brings us through nature.
