In the 75th anniversary year of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, aircraft including those from the Commemorative Air Force joined a light Interstate Cadet that actually encountered the Japanese force that day. Video from Saturday, 30 July 2016. Have you subscribed to the Airailimages Channel?

These types of videos are much more meaningful to me considering my father was A-3 aircrew for a huge chunk of his navy carrier. You have to respect these insane crews how flew these planes in the worst conditions. Glad these guys came home safely.
A great bit of levity in the midst of this amazing movie
My first flight “simulator” back in the 80s
Here’s a look at warbird action at Oshkosh on Saturday during EAA AirVenture 2016. Look for the Commemorative Air Force P-39 Airacobra, one of only two currently flying in the world. And there’s more — P-64, C-46 Commando, F4U, P-51s, A-1 Skyraiders, T-28s, Texans, a lot to enjoy, and more to come in future videos. Have you subscribed to the Airailimages Channel on YouTube?
