    that was great.I am a big aviation buff.There is a online game called Aces High.You fly wwII and WWI aircraft and ground vehicles.It is divided into 3 countries and it is 24 hr warfarfare.The vehicles are exteremely accurite and flight physics are really accurite.I belong to a squadron and we would do fighter sweeps,It is huge fun.You can talk to each other in real time over the radio or type.I have a flight control system with rudder pedals and the HOTAS setup.If you like flying this is great entertainment.

    That would be cool if it wasn't a monthly fee.

    I very seldom bother with watching a posted youtube link - Thanks, this was one worth watching. I know those planes.

    I see that little F-86 with the yellow stripes fly over my house pretty regularly. They use it as a cruise missile simulator for testing radar.

    Man that made my day.
    I remember a little bar in North Las Vegas in the late sixties and early 70's that was next to Nellis AFB. ( Flying Tiger Bar)
    I was stationed at Walker Lake in Hawthorne, Nv. my last 18 month's and we would haul the old hedgehogs and junk the Navy divers got out of the lake and take them to the old Lake Mead Naval Station to be salvaged.
    The Naval Station is part of Nellis now and when we got off duty, we would go to the Flying Tiger Bar and have some cool ones and flatter the temporary Air Force widows and keep them company for awhile.
    I like Las Vegas so much, I lived there for 5 years after I got out and then I got home sick for the green mountains of Ga.

    That last brief shot of the P-38, A-10, F4 and F-86 is so cool. Anybody that got to fly with let along fly the P-38, what an honor.

    Thanks for the video. I sent it on to a friend whose dad (Raymond L. Hastey) was one of the Flying Tiger pilots. I'm sure he will enjoy. If any of you ever get to Pine Mountain Ga. (neat little place) they have a small museum that features Mr Hastey.

    I visit Callaway Gardens about three or four times a year, I have family there but I have never seen that place. Where is it located?
