Interesting how the exhaust trails to the inside of each fin on that P-38

Woweee, makes you wish you'd been there, superb shots.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Second that.
The shiny P38 is awesome.
Thanks for sharing the pics.

Let's make Victoria great again.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Indeed, that's what it is. It's part of a fleet of WWI replica aircraft belonging to a museum in Mlada Boleslav, about 50 km north east of Prague.
