Airshow Moments 2019 1 – “White 9” and “Nellie B” Duo over Germany

If I had to pick two favourite warbirds of recent years, I'd be pretty sure that Buchon "White 9" and P-47 Thunderbolt "Nellie B" would come out on top. They both represent great examples of their types and under the care of Air Leasing are always flown in incredible style. 2019 saw both aircraft … Continue reading Airshow Moments 2019 1 – “White 9” and “Nellie B” Duo over Germany

I couldn't really turn down … Continue reading Mid Atlantic Air Museum – Reading PA
