    Two of a kind....or...just the tips? :)

    A cheeky pair of T-6 Texans (or SNJ's...or Harvards...depending on your preference) flying in extremely tight formation at last weekend's Utah Air Show.

    Those big fat old radials have such a lovely growl - and while the jets screaming by in full afterburner are always immensely cool, there's just something they'll never quite have when compared to those old engines. What a sound!

    There's a little bit of compression from the tele lens of course, so they look a bit closer than they really were. In reality, the lead plane probably had 4 or 5 feet of space ahead of the trailing. But from head on, they look like they're about to kiss!
