Last summer the wife and I went to Gatlinburg, TN. While there we stopped at the air museum. This gentleman was there with his Texan, he was getting in and gone before I could talk to him about going up with him. Which he does for a fee. Anyhow I asked the lady at the customer service desk if I could go out and record him taking off. She said sure just don't get out on the runway. Well heres the video enjoy!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjlRRkx7RrA Gotta love the sound of the motor as it passes.:$

That was sweet! Nothing like that sound for sure!

Gatlinburg is near my home. Newport Tn is where I was born, about 30 mile from Gburg

That is some beautiful country down there. We're looking to go back around January or Feb. Have you been to the museum Bill? I guess they have a pretty good warbird fly in every year.?.
