    I got a trophy

    Last Saturday i took the 52 TD to a show. It was called "Wings and Wheels". Its a combination Fly-in and car show. Its annual at the Essex County (NJ) airport.
    Mostly populated by bug Muscle and Hot Rods.
    There was a category for imports.
    The day was overcast with bouts of drizzle, so that had an effect on both the number of cars and the amount of Aircraft.
    I got a picture of the TD in front of an F4U. Its my new Icon.
    Any way I won Best of show imported.
    There was a Singing group "Victory Belles". They awarded trophies.
    The Award was the best part of the show.

    That Corsair looks like a 3 blade F4U-1A. What Pappy Boyington flew. We had them in Norman Oklahoma. I think we had about 10 of them. Later models with 4 bladed props and higher horse power were a bit faster. My favorite AC! Built like a tank and could take a tremendous beating! PJ
