A Waco biplane and view from the fore cockpit. :eyebrows:

I was a tad worried about the oil on every cylinder head cover, though it was probably just there for realism. The backfire when he throttled up for takeoff also added to the excitement.

It was difficult getting an unobstructed view of this F4. It always had a crowd around it.

Check out the tug next to it. :)

What used to be a TypeII. Wild Bill is a local tattoo artist who owns several high $$ hotrods. Who knew the tat business was so lucrative?

And a very clean old BSA.

That's just the lighting, though. It is definately an F8F.
Here's another shot where you can't see the break:

That one has the air vents on the cowling that was only added on the H version. I'm not certain the H was built for carrier deployment and didn't have articulated wings. The F4F/F6F and F8F all shared a lot of common features so it could be a NOS retrofit.
