I know this comes up every year and there has been countless threads about it but it is always fun to dream. If TFC could and the owners were willing as well as being realistic what aircraft would you like to see at Legends in the future? My wish list would be. B29 FIFI ( Commemorative Air Force ) Mosquito ( New Zealand ) FW190 Dora ( Flying Heritage Collection ) B24 Diamond ( Commemorative Air Force ) The Canadian Lanc ( I know we have one but to possibly have TWO in the air together would be magic and if Just Jane is made airworthy would be even better ) Zero ( Flying Heritage Collection ) Il2 Stormivok ( Flying Heritage Collection )

I would love to see some unlimited racers at legends. My first choices would be - Bearcat 'Rarebear' Sea Fury 'Dreadnought' and Griffon powered Mustang 'Precious Metal'

Good shout on the racers! That would be awesome to see some of those planes. They are super modified, So would be good to see how they compare to the original unmodified versions.

I have seen them at Reno. But I would go to the leg ends if they where there. Dave

I wonder if anyone from TFC is looking at this forum? If so we ask can you see if you can tee up some Reno air race planes to come over and strut there stuff : )

If you managed to achieve your 'Wishlist", would you then make the effort to come to Legends, unlike this year?

The old Hawker Sea/Fury racer Riff Raff went to the Czech republic not long ago-It's more likely to get to Legends

.... As did the ex-Sandy Thompson one from Canada, along with P-51 'Excalibur'.

Many of the highlight appearances at Flying Legends from US aircraft have come from Tom and Dan Friedkin's stable of warbirds ~ who have been long term supporters of the Air Show. If you bought a program at the show this year ~ you'll have noticed that Spitfire I - X4650 forms part of the Friedkin collection. I guess if we're all prepared to pay F1 / Premier League admission prices ( £ 50 plus ? ) ~ then the positioning costs / appearance fees might be covered for other operators to bring their aircraft. Pulling an aircraft apart in the USA and shipping it over to the UK for Legends requires logistical support and accommodation for the pilot and ground crew ~ which all adds to the cost. Aircraft such as the B-29 / B24 are kept airworthy through selling revenue rides every weekend through the summer. Taking a bomber off the US tour circuit for the best part of a month would be difficult ask for any group. Back in 2010 ~ Ray Fowler told me that the trip to the UK with B-17G "Liberty Belle" had left them with debts of six figures two years after they came over. It came because Don Brooks wanted to pay a personal tribute to his father. If my numbers ever come up on the lottery ~ I'll be plotting to sponsor a visit to these shores by something large and multi-engined from the USA ..... but it would probably blow the best part of a half a million dollars to do it ! :)

catch him in the traffic pattern A Tempest would also be great for Legends. He could wait for the 262 and catch him in the traffic pattern!

I think to airworthy standards, but not actually to fly in the near future. Rob
