Wings Over Wairarapa 2011: Post 14 - World War 2 fighters

One disappointment of the airshow was the absence of Spitfires. I imagine that the weather had something to do with it, although the Auckland based 2 seater apparently had some minor mechanical issues - better to be safe than sorry though!

Ok, I'm over that [!], and was very pleased to see the Vought/ Goodyear FG1D Corsair, ZK-COR, and two Curtis P40 Kittyhawks. These aircraft put on a really good display, but my favourite is and has always been the Corsair. I especially like the final picture with the Corsair pilot looking at the approaching P40 in the background.
