Willem - This is a P-40C and would be a Tomahawk IIB in U.K. service. It was built by Curtiss (c/n 16161) and assigned USAAC s/n 41-13357 according to Joe Baugher's published information. This aircraft was eventually shipped to the former Soviet Union as part of the Lend-Lease program.

It also should show up on the U.K. Civil Aircraft Registry as G-CIIO.

I'm guessing that's not a regular in Buffalo, Sam? Was this the weather diversion from the other day?

A/C was destroyed in a crash at Churchill, Manitoba [CYYQ] on November 13, 1979. Reportedly lost an engine on take-off and did not make a return to the airport. No fatalities.

This is British Airway's new low cost carrier. You pay nothing and you get nothing.

A great load hauler with 144 US gallons as the standard fuel capacity and a roomy cabin for six.

Has Southwest Airlines reverted back to these Desert Sand colours that they stopped using in 2001?
Since then we have become accustomed to their Canyon Blue livery variations.

I am also wondering why the French did not use an Airbus for this display fly past?

Written on 06/19/2017 by Leon Kay

The MD-11 has a higher landing speed than most other commercial aircraft, resulting in many heavy landings like this one. For that reason it has also been involved in several accidents and incidents during landing. This higher landing speed was the result of having reduced the size of its tail assembly. This had to be done to meet customer’s requirements to increase its range on long haul routes on this stretched fuselage version of it’s predecessor the MD-10.

Sam... the Kawasaki C-1 is a different (and older design) aircraft... just saying.

The Kawasaki C-2 is larger and newer.

Ron... my brother was working at KARA in 1977. You would have found him at the Air Logistics hangar. Nice airport there too. Used to be a U.S. Navy Air Station.

Greg, Jose, Dave, and Sam >> Hi and Thanks.
Dave >> It does indeed say "Whisperjet." And as you know, the name was accurate ... for passengers ON it. Compared to the propliners of that era, all tail-mounted models (727s, 111s, Tridents, VC-10s, etc., etc.) were way more quiet inside. But I always enjoyed flying in the old propliners; the noise was part of the thrill, especially when they did the run-ups prior to takeoff. (Big smile)
Jose .. I'm glad you enjoyed seeing this one. The worn out "oldie" pics in my folder were clicked back in the days when the only factor that deterred an aviation photographer was the cost of film. I was 17 when I snapped this ... and I was up in the control tower. All it took to go up there was to pick up the phone in the main terminal and ask. So long as there wasn't any type of emergency, anyone could go up and hang out for awhile. Same at the gates ... wait for an arrival to park and for the passengers to get off, then ask to go out, walk thru it, check out the cockpit, snap a pic or two. And when you were out at the end of the runways, just go and sit a few feet away from the end. No fences around the perimeter. Security would drive by and caution you not to go out ON the runway or taxiway ... but they never made you leave. Best of times.

When I saw the thumb nail, I thought it might be a 328 jet. Hopefully the An-148 has worked well for its carriers.

G Zorbas... you are remembering the Macchi MB-326, built in Italy by Aermacchi. The MB-326K version of this aircraft was also licensed for production in South Africa as the Impala Mk I and Mk II by Atlas Aircraft. It shared design characteristics of wing tanks, tandem seating, and a single jet engine with Lockheed's T-33, which was a development of Lockheed's earlier P-80 Shooting Star fighter aircraft.
