Perhaps Kermit could bring down a certain ex New Zealand P51 and take back one of the others or, even better, we could get a Dauntless down here. That would look good with the Avenger. ;D Ahhh dreams are free. Getting warbirds here isn't.

Would be nice to see an overseas visitor, but I suspect it will be the traditional P-51, P-40, Avenger, DC-3 etc. Not that there's anything wrong with those aircraft of course! I rather doubt we will see a P-38 or P-39, my two American favourites. (along with the Brewster Buffalo which we definitely won't be seeing anytime soon)

Hi all I have been lurking around this forum for awhile, take it easy on me but wouldnt it be nice if the US Navy filled up an aircraft carrier with a very nice selection of aircraft. Sailed out here anchoured off Blenhiem, then we would have an airshow to die for. Dont get me wrong but Omaka is great already it would just give another twist to the Amercian Theme :-). I seem to recall that ,that could have happened many years ago when Gorge Gair was in Parliment but I think the golf war interferred with that,as the US Navy said that if the carrier was needed they would push the aircraft over the side ?? Now that would NOT have been funny. Anyway nothing ventured nothing gained I say,after all the US Military relations are warming to us
A good landing is one that you can walk away from the aircraft.........
Well, if WoW can get a Zero here, than what's stopping Omaka's organisers from pulling a rabbit out of a hat (or a B-17 out of America, although I heard when a US outfit took a B-17 to the UK a few years back it nearly ruined them financially)? It's about contacts, I guess. Not what you know, but who you know. TVAL don't run Omaka, so their input will be minimal.
I think Omaka need to think a bit more about how they are going to theme their events, personally.
