Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Nothing but pure joy that they continue, and i was able to return.  Grin

Not a P-51, nor would it be. Navy planes are what you got there Grin  Bearcat, perhaps?

Nice pics Dano!
I wish I could have gone, I'd really loved to see the F22 in flight.
Hope you enjoyed the show.

Had one of those old/new flys at our local air show a couple years ago, it was fun to watch one of our new planes trying to "Keep down" with one of our old fighters. GWTW just happens to be right in the flight path here and is a fine spot to hang out during the shows. We've never gotten one of the US flight teams out here but Beale AFB always sends out a demo flight and the Canadian Snow Gooses have made the show a regular stop, they always put on a nice show, "Eh?".   Wink   Glad to see last years tradegy didn't dampen the show, when we had a crash it shut down the show for a year or two.
