FIVE Smoking US War Birds

FIVE 1950’s War Birds pass overhead leaving smoke trails during the 2011 SUN ‘n FUN Fly-In at Linder Airport in Lakeland Florida. These single propeller rotary engines were the last fighter planes used before the military’s transition to jets. The final time they engaged in action was during the Viet Nam war.

    I am surprised that prop war birds were used in Vietname, I would have thought Korea would have seen them out. Great Shot of History.
