airborne hot rods

Last saturday, we went to a historic airshow in Kestenholz, Switzerland. I'd never call myself an aircraft enthusiast, but if you're into traditional hot rods, you're bound to come across airforce history sooner or later. It's a well-known fact that due to WW2, the early hot rod evolution came to a break. But as many young men that joined the army returned after the war with a whole lot of newly acquired mechanical skills, keen on trying them on their roadsters, they turned the whole thing into a true hot rod revolution: the dry lakes, the first hot rod shows, the birth of drag racing and so on. Anyway, it was a great experience to check out those historic airplanes, sitting in a field or blasting across the clear blue sky. Unfortunately, I only took a few pics. Update: I just added ten more pics!
