SWINGIN' WINGS!

New P-40 Montage!

Okay, that's spooky. I was just thinking yesterday of a live recording of this tune that I love and how well it would go with a WW2 flight sim video, mainly because of the virtuoso drumming of Gene Krupa. My dad was a drummer and this was the music of his time. Playing tunes like this (along with what then was called "dirty blues") in local clubs, then later playing in the army band (too young to serve in the war) helped pay for his degrees. An inspired choice, Barton, well done!

I was looking to do a montage with music of the period and swing music just has that energy that compliments the action, I think.  This song is particularly good!  Glad everyone has enjoyed it!  More to come--and pretty soon, too, the way these German pilots are just throwing themselves in front of my guns!

Nice!

I saw you used flaps at least once, I thought that would make the Kitty fall out of the sky...

I can see why some really like the P40. Those 6 Ma Deuces really seem to pack a punch (perhaps over-modeled?).
