That A-26! :love:

Really want to try and get to an airshow in Sweden this year, seem to have a great selection of historic aircraft on their circuit.

Great pictures as well. :clap:

Great set of photos, I remember when Sugarland Express was a regular at Flying Legends. I really should get to a show in Sweden, go there fairly regularly, but never been to an airshow.

Can only echo what the other guys have said, Sugarland Express really is a looker! Although all of the aircraft look exceptionally smart!

An excellent series, Mattias. My favourite is the Heron - I have a soft spot for them.
Cheers,

Fantastic pin-sharp pictures. I love the A-26, but my favourite is the beautiful C-47 close-up :clap:

Me too, but re-engined with Lycomings? Not as pretty as the Gypsies. Still, its in the air, which is the right place for it!

Cracking series, miss the A26 from Legends...
