Let’s Do The Time Warp Again
Strolling in, I asked the staff of the Cavanaugh where I might find the sound recording event. The wonderful, polite, and tolerant staff of the Cavanaugh deserve some mention here. They directed me to the second hangar. Walking through, I saw two World War I biplanes, a B-25 Mitchell and in between the hangars, a glistening F-104A Starfighter whose lineage could be traced to the rather large Lockheed-Martin facility a few miles away on I-30 in Fort Worth.
Scott Gentile on P-40
Walking in, I found Scott Gentile where you’d have found most, if not all, of us, firmly in the cockpit of a gleaming, fresh-from-the-paint-barn P-40 Warhawk. After exchanging pleasantries, we got almost immediately to work, snapping pictures of this living piece of history sandwiched between two more of its ilk, a flying P-51D Mustang and a F4U Corsair whose engine was gone, in the process of being rebuilt.
