    Default Who Likes Aircraft?

    I love aircraft and found this YouTube video of a gorgeous Grumman F7F Tigercat being put through its paces. Wonderful stuff. Put it on full screen and turn the volume up for this one, it sounds incredible.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e1IM6nXsdQc

    The Tigercat was one of the fastest prop powered planes ever built.



    Feel free to add other videos or photos. I'll bung more on.

    Yeah. Saw a Mosquito at North Weald about 25 years ago. It was the only flying example at the time I believe. Sounded superb.

    I also saw the Tigercat in the first video there one year, when the Grumman Ironworks display was there. Awesome plane
