This is the new "History In Flight" series which will be a printed kites done by our friends "Los Hermanos"......cat_lol.gif The first one we have done is the P-51 fighter which played a huge role in keeping the skies safe in WW 2, as you can see this also comes with a matching custom carry bag and is called "The Dog Fight"....... So enjoy and lets always remember that this is just the beginning of a whole new series of kites....... Ben ani_victory.gif ani_victory.gif ani_victory.gif

P-51 Mustang ! Nice aircraft or as we called aircraft in the Royal Air Force "KITES", that applied to anything that flew by the way!

 

Now what is wanted is the Spitfire and Hurricane and offer a set of them to "The Flying Squad" and rename to

"The Flying Squadron" ani_victory.gif

Not my choice of design, but I can thoroughly recommend the printed Revs I have a pair and I absolutely love them in light wind.

Could the P-51D in the lower right be N5441V/511582 "SPAM CAN" ?

Alden - look close at the markings!! It's a German plane - probably a ME-109!

The Corsair is a gull wing craft, not straight wings! Remember the planes used in the TV series about the "Black Sheep" squadron? Most, I think, were Navy planes and painted dark blue!

I would say a BF 109.

BF? Never heard of those letters used in a description of German aircraft! FW - Focke Wolfe or ME - Messerschmidt , I think those two supplied most of the German aircraft for WWII! There are probably others, just not as popular as those two!

I was looking at the front cowling that's what made me think of the corsair.

Corsairs were Navy, and flew off of carriers and some bases in the South Pacific battles.Luftwaffe Bf-109 is what is pictured on the left(googled it) Correction:Messerschmitt Bf 109 or as they were most often called me-109.

Have the plans been put into motion for other kites in this series? The Dog Fight certainly is a beautiful kite although I am hoping for a space themed version or maybe even a mixed era from WWII to space on the same kite.

 

Thanks!
