My Take on Classic Fighters

I had waited impatiently for the day to finally arrive and head off to Omaka. The weather on Sunday was slightly disappointing with low cloud everywhere. It made photography a challenge but the show was superb with a large number of aircraft that I had not seen before.

  1. It looks to me as if Kermit Weeks is flying the Albatross?

  2. He certainly was, anon. A friend and I got to talk with him briefly, a) he said the Albatros had a very sweet-running engine, and 2) he loved coming to Omaka and really enjoyed the show.
