What a beautiful bird. My all-time favorite airplane!!!
Top notch. Great video from a training, technical, and artistic aspect. Shame they had to put down the flaps on approach :-)
Great video and commentary thanks
A Great bird with a LOT of fantastic history.
They form most of the fixed wing component of the "Lee County Air Force" dedicated to killing mosquitoes before they kill us. They do much of the aerial spraying of the post-larval insects making our lives livable. They fly just above the tree tops often in formation and spray much of our county....we get a good return for our tax dollars from them.
At least some of them are turbine conversions.
This is Lee County in southwest Florida, btw, berthed at the old Buckingham Army Airfield.
