2. What the hell is your job???
3. YOU'RE IN A P-51 TOO?
Jesus christ I hope you're joking.
Holy fucking shit that's awesome.
It's hard to tell with you
We used P-51's (renamed F-51 but basically the same shit) through to the Korean war and that was about all for them, they were decommissioned in the late 50s.
Man the view from a canopy looks a bit fucked up.
You fly with Chuck Norris?
If you've ever seen pictures of the canopy since the way the glass is made (or other material?) it's warped when stretched like that.
Same as the sides of your windshield in a car.
That's because it was so thick... made to be bulletproof in fact. I guess bullet-resistant would be better though
The bubble canopy was much better than the old birdcage type one: Here and Here (2nd is a game, but gives you an idea). We use polycarbonate (sp?) on out jets, still a little distortion in some areas but overall much better.
