Since I’ve been gathering a bit more information for the ‘Joplin Jalopy’ blog I was idly image searching this afternoon. I just found out about the Convair Model 39/104/R2Y “Liberator Liner” and was just looking at some PB4Y-2 Privateer things when I saw some footage of a Privateer performing at Chino in 2017. Then I found some footage of the same Privateer (It’s the world’s only airworthy PB4Y-2 in any case) at Chino a couple of weeks ago on May 5. I pressed the “play” button and let my jaw drop. I saw things flying past I never dreamed I’d see. So I had to share the video with you – it’s at the bottom of this post.

I didn’t expect to see this, mostly because I didn’t know it even existed, much less was airworthy
And neither did I expect to see it flying in formation with this:
Well, enough of this teasing. There is a lot more in the video. I may have a few more things to say later. Personally I wasn’t keen on the music for the slo-mo sequences which start about half way through, but that’s an issue of personal taste and my own hearing.
