Warbirds enthusiasts

I think the title is pretty self-explanatory? As some of you may have noticed I quite like the old warbirds so I wanted to have a thread where other enthusiasts could post both real life pics / stories and IF pics too. If it gets some followers then also post request for warbirds here from the #features category so we can all see and add what we think. Hopefully this will also add some weight to the argument for some more classic planes so post pics of your favourites and lets open it up for discussions. I’ve added my request to overhaul the spit so feel free to add any thoughts you have. Would be good to get a group of us together and maybe do some group flights too.

Nice, the best thing about seeing them live is the sound. I believe there is no better sound in the world!

What about the Handley Page Victor Bomber? (:

Any warbird enthusiast likes a good old plane that looks like a weird insect!

Indeed, these would go great with Vulcan as they were also used for mid air re fueling during Operation Black Buck
