Saturday-Glenn wins an award.

I spent most of the day sitting under the Monosport wing talking to people about the airplane. We found out the night before that it had won an award, we just didn't know which one.
Sky was pulled into service by Lorraine Morris at her and husband Ken's hand-propping forum. That was great! He seemed genuinely interested and really paid attention to Lorraine's instruction and critiques.
Sky takes a hand-propping lesson.
One of the highlights of the show for me was seeing Tora! Tora! Tora! for the first time. These guys did a good job of showing you what it was like to be there on that morning.

A P-40 scrambles to meet the attack.

Twelve B-17's were inbound from the States
 that morning and found themselves in the middle of the attack.

The outmoded and outnumbered P-40 flames a Zero.
Glenn won Outstanding Closed Cockpit in Vintage that evening.
