Where I live is near to Rolls Royce' main factory, so at least 2 or 3 times a year I hear the unmistakable roar of the glorious Merlin engines as a Spitfire or Lancaster flies low overhead.

When I was younger there was a nearby commuter hop airfield with a millionare with a few ww2 fighters and he would fly them around on the weekends. The p51 was my favorite though the spitfire and hellcat also sounded sweet.

As a pilot, absoutely nothing in the sky beats the sound of a roaring Merlin engine.

Hit a small local airshow about a month back.  They had a B-25, B-24, B-17, P-51, and a P-40.  They offered flights.  Would like to check out a bigger one next year.

Very cool OP.  Live in the vicinity of Paul Allen's Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum in Everett WA.  Oh the sound of those large piston engines is so good.

Most of my dad's 20+ years at Boeing was at the Renton plant but he did spend a few years at the Everette plant in 1969/early 70s. He did not like the drive from south King County but that was better than getting layed off. 

 

He started his career at Boeing working on the KC tanker but later was switched over to the 727.  When my dad retired in the late 1970s, to get the same amount of work done my dad had been doing, they had to replace him with two people.

I got the chance to fly in a B-17g, 1 of the greatest moments in my life.

I made it out to the Reno Air Races in 1969, attended 3 days, was too awesome. Darryl Greenamyer won the Unlimited Race that year and I watched Bob Hoover lose a cylinder in his P-51 during his aerobatic routine, but he finished out his performance anyway. Also saw Bob do his Shrike Commander act where he ended it by feathering both props at the top of a loop and did a deadstick landing from there and rolled right up to the announcers podium.

 

I got to Oshkosh in 1992 (or maybe it was 93), that was some kind of great, too. My favorite act there was a Beech 18 aerobatic routine (a plane that I have over a thousand hours in). The R-985s on the Beech sound so good.
