N163FS / 269021 (cn 43-11223) Like its cousin the Aircobra, the P-63's engine was mounted in the fuselage behind the cockpit with the propeller running off of a long shaft. You sure don't see too many of either type anymore!

93-1085 / WM (cn 1018/AV-18) One of the best airshows I have ever attended was the 2007 Gathering of Mustangs and Legends at Rickenbacker AFB in Columbus Ohio. The weather was fantastic, the venue and sheer number of aircraft were amazing, and they even had two giant jumbo-tron screens broadcasting the show live as illustrated in this B-2 fly-by.

N73126 (cn 53) A search on this site for this registration will come up with a photo I took some years ago when this ex-Frontier and Aspen Convair was still flying and looking sharp. It was sad to see her ending her days here in Columbus rotting away at Air Tahoma\\\'s maintenance facility, but at least we know that it lives on as an \\\"organ donor\\\" to keep her brethren airborne.
