    NICE!!.....A few weeks ago we had an air show with the Blue Angels headlining at McConnell AFB in Wichita. I work at Cessna Components Mfg Facility and we sit on the North end of the runway. I came out of a meeting and was walking across the parking lot when an F-16 made a high-speed pass across the base during practice and over the plant at about 2-300ft. I looked up and he went straight up right over me!! I was literally looking up the exhaust. He later made a few passes with a P-51 on his wing and that was cool to see as well. Being where we are located, we get to see some pretty neat stuff from the AFB!

    Great pictures!! Makes me want to get back into flying.

    I heard that after the war you could purchase a new P-38, or a new Thunderbolt for a $1,000 right from the factory. Don't know if that was true or not, but wouldn't you like to have a few now.
