Greatest Show On Turf

For the third time, I ventured to the Geneseo Air Show, held at the 1941 Historical Aircraft Group. Every year they hold an airshow, featuring World War Two aircraft, with a few other aircarft such as the F-16 Viper jet.
This year, the theme was Tuskegee Airmen, famous for the Red Tail Mustangs used to escort US bombers during the war.

Another great plane to see, one of the only left flying, was the Curtiss SB2C Helldiver, from the West Texas wing of the Commemorative Airforce

A few acrobatic teams were on hand, including Rob Holland,

The Canadian Harvards,

and a Pitts Special

Also on hand were the Westland Lysander III of the Canadian Warplane Heritage,

A C130 from the 109th AW Scotia NY

a C-47A Dakota from 1941HAG

and a Fairey Firefly Mk.6, also from CWH

Some B-25

And considering WW2 is famous for having nose art, a couple of Dolls were around as well!!

And there was one fast mover, the F-16 of Viper West

And Geneseo is also the home to the movie version of the Memphis Belle, a B-17.

and of course, the P-51 Mustang was also well represented, with 4 aircraft.

And perhaps my favourite World War 2 Fighter Plan, the Chance Vought F4U Corsair.
