Without doubt, one of the most spectacular concert venues in the world. The Sydney Opera House (again) shining like a pearl across the dark waters of Sydney Harbour.

"After all, I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string.”

This is P-40B 41-13297, a survivor of the attack on Pearl Harbor.
Well, I suppose I should say that they started with 41-13297 and wound up with this. I really don't know how much of it is actually '297', how much of it is from a couple other original airframes and how much is totally new. From what I've heard there's quite a bit of new construction in this bird, and some folks have even used the term 'new build'.
In the end, I don't really care if it is a 'new build' or not... or 50%, or 75% or whatever. As a P-40 nut I'd like to find out for sure exactly how much is original and how much is new, but all that truly matters to me personally is the fact that there is now another Curtiss P-40 flying. And this example is one of only two early models which are currently airworthy.
She's headed over to England to become part of The Fighter Collection at Duxford, but I hope that someday she'll come back to the USA to stay. And it would be super groovy to see her in the skies over her native Buffalo once again...
