Another one from Saturday's Flying Legends display at Duxford, the Grumman Bearcat.

When Neil Armstrong was asked what was his favourite aircraft to fly he respond the Bearcat.

With a big engine and even bigger (12' 4") prop, it is strangely proportioned thing, but one of the best performing prop war birds and still a favourite for air racing as a result.

Thanks for stopping by.

Neil

Thanks Laurel. Ah yes, I guess 16mm is a bit of a giveaway! Wink My EPZ template seems to have some pentax exif embedded in it, I will see if I can resolve.

Thanks also Jim and Ron for your comments. the weather had its moments on Saturday Ron, but as long as it is not flat grey or flat blue I will take it!

Thanks again.

Neil
