RAF Cosford. 3900 ft. runway. I didn't know there was a museum there.

The WWII weekend is May 17-19. I doubt it will be flying by then.

So, have YOU ridden YOUR bike to Sturgis? I have, from Dallas. 5 times. I trailer it now. It's a very boring ride the first time, not to mention the 5th.

Amazing B1-B

Yes amazing, so realistic I could actually smell that flight deck/aircraft smell so familiar to us as I spun around that cockpit. Great find.

Any ideas where the schedule for this year's demo flights might be? I'm guessing that they'll be at Oshkosh, but that's a bit far this time around. I've seen a lot of WWII-vintage aircraft fly over the years, but never a Mosquito. It's been a particular favorite of mine since I was a kid.
