Just to clarify actually this a/c was landing at the the time my apologies about that. This a/c is painted in the colors of Lt. Robert Hampton Gray R.C.N. attached to H.M.S. Formidable during the Pacific Campaign in which he was shot down and killed while attacking a Japanese destroyer receiving The Victoria Cross.

My father was a navy pilot from 1943-1946, then flew in the USNR through the early 50's. He flew the Hellcat, usually as a night-fighter pilot. I once asked him if he had flown Corsairs. He said that he had flown them a few times, but he did not like landing them. He commented on the position of the pilot and the long nose creating difficulties, and the landing gear being a little less stable for carrier landings. I am not real clear, but that is what I remember from a conversation 30 years ago. He also told me that his unit VF-33 flew Corsairs out of Guadalcanal, before he joined it.

Thanks all. Yes, it is B77W. I have corrected.

Massive trailing edge flap area...sadly, only approx 150 were built. A great shot!

Flew on one from Van Nuys ANG base to McClellan AFB, to somewhere in Utah (McClellan had blown our Avionics), to Tinker, then to Andrews. On landing at Andrews blew 4 old rotted tires. So Georgia ANG flew a new crew up (with new tires)and we reversed course. That's a long time in web seats. Shakey was Noisy! But a roomy aircraft.

Paul Hurford - I understand what you're saying about the difficulty of changing tires on some original Riviera wheels... but those large aftermarket wheels chosen simply look awful on such a classic design as this first "gen" Riviera.

Myself, were it mine, I would have selected a replacement wheel diameter closer to the original factory wheels... if I replaced them at all... and if doing so, earnestly tried to go for a more "period" correct "look". Perhaps something from American Racing's aftermarket vintage wheel catalog.

I should add too that my earlier posting spelled the name of this Buick as "Rivera"... which is entirely incorrect, of course. It's "Riviera"!!!

Though I'm not affiliated with aviation industry, I enjoy the articles too. Terry Bourke's comment made my day. Thanks, Terry, for your post.

Written on 20/05/2017 by Rick Putnam

yes, this plane looks old not only from the outside, even inside it was quite old, heavily used chairs etc...

Not a pilot or anything. Spent career in IT. But this is a beautiful picture and airplane! (enjoy the comments, too)

Cliff731 said: "The nice first generation Buick Rivera next to it regrettably should have kept its original wheels installed."

I say - Did you ever try to R&R a tire on an original Rivera Wheel? If you did, you would understood why the owner changed the rims. It generally took 3x times as long to replace a tire on a Rivera Wheel.

Not a big deal, looks like the reg is N97KC, and not N57KC.

Written on 20/05/2017 by Daniel Hughes

OMG!!!!! I have not only weight and balanced this aircraft but i have also physically loaded this plane on the day it was in Houston!!!! This is cool?

What is he doing ? Country forced Landing? Private Strip ?...

Written on 20/05/2017 by serge LOTH

Loading one of these for weight and balance is so easy. It is a nose heavy plane but the is a simple rule which if you follow with maybe a small fraction of the time almost guarantees that it will fly

Regardless of the model, this is a beautiful old bird

Marines flew these in WWII and Korea.
Father in Law was Crew Chief on one of these at El Toro MCAS after he returned from So. Pacific in '44 till war's end.
In 1968 I met one of the last Flying Sgts in the Corps. He drove one in Korea.
I think the French used them in Indo-China.

My first ride in a jet. From Chanute Airforce Base back in 1961. Part of the NavCad program. What a ride. I had a PPL at the time so I got to fly a little. Sure was a lot quicker than the 7AC back home.
