2012 Luftwaffe Day in Everett
The weather cooperated but the gremlins were busy at the Flying Heritage Collection 2012 Luftwaffe Day in Everett, WA - Aug. 11, 2012.
The Messerschmitt Bf 109 did not even start its engine.
The Focke-Wulf Fw-190 A-5 taxied to the runway -
but then developed problems so never took off and taxied back to the hanger -
The Fieseler Fi 156 C-2 Storch had better luck and put on a show for the crowd -
Olympic Mountains in the background -
And just after the show, several FA-18s from VMFA-314 "Black Knights" squadron passed by and took off from Paine Field.
