As mentioned in frenchy's harvard flight thread I had the opportunity to take a joy flight in a Vietnam era T-26 Trojan 2 years ago.
My wonderful wife had bought me the flight as a birthday present so until we got to the airfield I had no idea what was in store for me. As my father had been a pilot and I had some experience I was comfortable to let the pilot have some fun and as we flew over the estuary area towards Moreton Bay and the Gold Coast he made some dummy dive bombing runs in the general area of some local pleasure boats (although not too close to cause alarm). It was easy to imagine we were over the Mekong Delta and the boats were all VC!
First the pilot would tip her over on one wing then as the nose came down we'd line up on some islet and hold the line for effect before peeling away and regaining height for the next run. Pretty exhilarting stuff I have to say and probably the fastest 45 minutes i've ever had!
I hope you enjoy the photos!
