2016 Shelby GT350, 2017 Ford Focus ST, On Order 2020 CTFP Shelby GT 500 with POTTS. Car is released and awaiting shipment. I am running out of time before having to leave for Japan on July 29th.
Now I'm flying the Airbus. I was a Boeing guy all my life until going to the dark side.
I don’t like the Airbus’ composite vertical stabilizer. Naval Aviators all the way!

Aviators boosting about aircraft and how they slip.........prefer silk as you slip your chute. Just saying.

Wrecked GT 500, that's got to hurt $$$$. Should be an interesting story driven by the crashed ego. Hopefully no injuries

Me too Brother! MD's, Boeing and Lockheed!! Now on the Darkside flying the 320 series! Air Force C-141 guy!
Yuck.

I'll keep the 777 and 787 till the day I die. Airbuses are totally no fun.

With THAT attention to detail Tom, you'd have made a good Marine aviator. :-)



Once again, I couldn't stop laughing, Mike! I still am...

Hood pins seem to work!! Maybe some on the fenders and its good to go. Hoping for no injuries too.

Brings back memories, Merlin..."If it ain't a Boeing, I ain't going." :-)
Indeed... lol we still laugh about that stuff... what 25 years later? I miss the small stuff though. 727's were fun. 707s were a BLAST.

Who said they were?
Definitely a different animal! I bad mouthed it for years - had to go fly it. Big Cockpit, easy to
fly, passengers Love it, But not as much FUN to fly for sure! After all it is an Airbus! Still haven't met an Aero Machine I didn't Love to fly! (or a Mustang for that matter)!!

Wonder if you're active on the Airbus n
<smiling> Then ALL those times when ATC kept us too high in a 727, I guess I just THOUGHT I was slipping her. <still grinning>
Nothing beats getting sick in the jump seat of a P-51 Mustang.
PIper Cubs Rock....LOL. You guys with the flying Greyhound busses...

vertical stabilizers don't deprive the pilot of O2 and have a much better MTBF.

Starting a thread for all wrecked 2020 and newer GT500 cars.
This is the first customer car I have seen wrecked.
(I know about the two cars that were being hauled to Penske)
If you see any wrecked or totaled 2020+ GT500s, please most them here along with the VIN number if possible.
I don’t mean fender benders.

Did anyone find out how that Shelby wound up in that condition.
