While it is amazing to see the Naval Aviation history preserved at Pensacola, the enthusiast in me of all things mechanical can't help but long to see these beasts of the air scream alive and rip open the sky.


  1. #86, the Corsair, wow mate, my favourite carrier borne plane of all time, get em in the air, fly free !!! Everytime you mention Troubleheads I begin to doubt my purchase, at least I know I'll be able to occupy my time and drain the wallet . . . ha ha ha !!!

    1. No, I don't want to discourage you!! Remember, I'm the mechanic. My bike gets neglected while I work on others. I have a lot of customers who have very reliable shovelheads. The carpenters house is the only one in town with a broken gate, dig?

    2. Yeah mate, I dig . . . . phew !!!
