Flying Legends 2008
« on: May 28, 2008, 03:42:57 PM »
hello all,

While every photographer will be heading for the RIAT 2008, in the same weekend
will I visit the Flying Legends 2008.

My visit of last year made a stunning impact, just the very relaxed atmosphere
and all those kicking and smoking radial or line engines are a great view/sound.
Besides that is there no gap between the displays, just 5 hours of non-stop
flying "golden" oldie birds.

The participation list is as every year released at the last moment, but here a
list of all aircrafts that have confirmed their participation on their own website.

Hello all,

Some good news for the Flying Legends visitor  ;D

It seems that the good old "Sally B" will make her come back again
at the Flying Legends. Combine this with the confirmed participation
of the "Pink Lady" from France and the "Liberty Belle" from the USA.
And you have a highly exclusive fly-by of three beautiful ladies.
Looking already forward to this fly-by with 12 Wright R-1820-97
"Cyclone" turbo supercharged radial engines of each 1200 HP.

Regards, Ramon
