I always thought the P-38 Lightning was a cool looking plane. Don't think I'd want to fly it, but still very cool looking.

This photo is interesting for a few reasons. Obviously, it's a very differential type formation which is tricky to fly...to say the least. Also it features planes from 3 different private owners, and the USAF. The Heritage Flight Foundation usually features the F-22 or occasionally the F-15 or F-16...to see an A-10 is pretty cool. 

The planes here are P-51C "Tuskegee Airmen" owned by CAF Red Tail Squadron, P-38F "Glacier Girl" owned by Rod Lewis, F-86F 'Skyblazers' owned by Doug Matthews, and the Warthog owned by us Americans...technically.

 

Great photos in the link too.

Also, SP: it's technically 4 machine guns and an autocannon :playing:
