Strictly speaking the Sea Fury was not a WWII aircraft, only entering service in 1947, so Ill grant you the Spit as the most attractive WWII bird.  Of course that's really only splitting hairs.  LOL

I agree with you about the Catalina, a beautiful aircraft for sure.  As for Daks, there was one of these on the flight-line of VC-851 when I was on that squadron that had its nose replaced by the radome from a de Havilland Sea Venom as a former training aircraft.  I got so used to that aircraft that ever since normal DC-3s look snub-nosed to me.   ::)

I reckon that the P40s were good looking too.  Not equal to the Japanese Zeros but they are revered old airplanes that Chenault made good use of.

my number one son spent today having a good old time with his buddies. here hes the one with the blue shield

there are limitations on legal blows. you are not allowed to use the tip, for instance, because tips can easily penetrate unptotected areas, just like they used to.

hes waving this broadsword around, but his preferred weapon is a long handled axe

lol

he just sent me another. his axe is really as much a war hammer as it is an axe

Go for it, to get to 68 and thinking you had wished you did it at 65 is no way to live.

Denny, take note that Billy is suicidal in a different way.  He uses ancient motorcycles to compete in speed record events. 

It is said that there is no fool like an old fool.  I am eminently qualified in that regard because I have done some really crazy stuff too. Besides, I am old enough to have participated in the war against the Visigoths.

see, your sense of humour could incite suicide among some people
