The following payback from Simon is unique in the way that it evokes a slightly musty secondhand bookstore smell.

Very rare-'Horrido" Meine Jahren gegen die Komunismus im Luftraum Spaniens 1936-1939. The original cover has been torn off, unfortunately as it had been signed by the author, Hauptmann Rheinhardt Bousard.

(killed on the first day of the Battle of Britain by a Walrus amphibian which got onto his tail unseen).

Here is the frontispiece picture of the author

John P. Wind Vane

Beautifuly built from scrap timber, this Blossom Air wind vane is indeed a wonderful idea from John. He's considering a Connie next, I'd like DH Comet myself, who knows, John might take orders???


Verily, thy humble 737, re-fitted with a pair of overzised Pratt and Whitney J-T9's?

Unfortunately, the 1/4 mile speed trials for this baby were not taken, as the aircraft's sonic shockwave destroyed the recording equipment.

Hotted Up Civilians

Here's a couple of nicely lowered, blueprinted and tuned airliners from John P.
I can almost smell the fuel additives from here.

Souped Up F4U

Well, it's been more than a year now and I guess it's time to post something new.
Our new submission comes from none other than John Pantaleone himself.
A great artist whose work can be oggled at his own website:
There you will also find some rather cool aircraft art, check it out.
I've always loved the theme of hotted up warbirds or hot rod planes.
