    ^^^ The XB-70 Valkyrie was the most awesome and beautiful airplane to ever fly IMO, and seeing the very one pictured above in person at the Wright-Patterson museum in Ohio is a bucket list item for me.....

    Speaking of Corsairs.


    I got my very first airplane ride from this guy (Bud Granley) about 40 years ago. That ride was in a T-6 which belonged to my uncle (who was still learning to fly) and we did some aerobatics. To say I was hooked that day is a mild understatement.

    And here's the poor guy flying a P-51 (and very well I might add).

    And yes, the engines in both planes sound way more awesome from the ground when you rip past then when you're seated right behind them.

    This guy is full on rock star to me. Last summer when I was at the Arlington Air Show he was flying Paul Allen's Hawker Hurricane and his son was flying Paul's P-47. I expected he would have no recollection since I look a bit different than when I was 13, but he was a friend of my uncle. He said "of course I remember!" which might have just been to make me feel good, but it worked.

    Trying to create the illusion that I have a few firing synapses I asked how it was flying the Hurricane. "Goofy!" was his description. He didn't much care for the springiness of the elevator control

    This is the routine he does in his own T-6, from the inside and watching his face. G loads are a lot of damn work.

    I can haz Dramamine now?
    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.
