Two Su-27s flew over where I lived in Alabama. TacAir bought them for adversary training. There were several rumors that the Red Hats had them as well.

Do they do any airshows? Or strictly DAT?

Only DAT. There are a few organizations that have some interesting aircraft in their inventory. One that has several Kfir airframes along with Hunters, the Su-27s, and others.

Boy would I like to get the chance to see one of them go through the works in a show, that the Raptor, and the Fulcrum. Come to think of it, go ahead and through the JSF in their as well.

My faves so far are the "Lone Star Lady" and of course the Blackbird for obvious reasons. Thanks for the thread and pics Zaph!

You can catch them flying off the coast of Norfolk and San Diego pretty frequently...

One of the companies is based in Norfolk. AvLeak just profiled them.

They immediately searched their emergency checklist for the section on flying the aircraft with both engines out, only to find that no such section existed.

en.wikipedia.org...

She's in pretty condition. They're taking really good care of her.

Truly comical, unless you are on that flight.



As they communicated their intentions to controllers in Winnipeg and tried to restart the left engine, the cockpit warning system sounded again with the "all engines out" sound, a long "bong" that no one in the cockpit could recall having heard before and that was not covered in flight simulator training.[4] Flying with all engines out was something that was never expected to occur and had therefore never been covered in training.

Lovely pics Zaph!

Great to see a Shackleton in good condition and a nice RAF Jaguar, in Gulf War paint, there was a bird that could rule at low level!

Great to see a Tomcat in original colours and the German IDS Tornado in original naval colours too!

I can't believe I forgot this one. This was their F-117 on Celebrity Row.

Why did they leave it out without a tarp over it?

More like, "insane"! A forward slip in a 767! Who... how... my mind boggles! My friend did one in a Cessna and freaked his GF out! But with no power! I am speechless.

Wow! Thanks for the read!
