Fantasy of Flight

I talk to you about this guy before.

Kermit Weeks is a former world aerobatic champion, but most interesting is his collection of vintage aircrafts, which he all flies. You can even go to his Fantasy of Flight park in Florida.

On his Youtube web site he does a lot of walk around pre-flight and then flies whatever plane he wants to.

He just posted 2 new videos of his P51D ( 1 pre-flight and 2 taxi getting ready for flight) hopefully #3 coming soon.

https://youtu.be/jzKFkYLHq3Q
https://youtu.be/J1F_UJaaP1A

BTW his first airplane in his collection that he bought was an AT6 (he has a series of video on that with some snap rolls).

Also he just acquired Howard Hugues Sikorsky S-43 and found something interesting in it and like he said might be worth more than the plane itself. You'll like those planes Dan.

Enjoy

Just finished watching it, he goes over a nearby RC field and there is a little drama near the end......
