Warbirds Over North Branch - 2013

The Somerset Signal Senders had their Warbirds Over North Branch on Sunday, June 22nd.

The day started out around 9:30am, sunny in the mid 80's with light winds. We had 24 pilots from NJ, NY and PA, and a crowd of around 60 people including spectators and park rangers. John Samtak, Dave Rollino and Felipe Trucco manned the lunch station and served up some tasty food for everyone.

It was a great day for a fly-in. We had all types of planes from WWI, WWII, Korea, Nam and Persian Gulf. To name some: Fokker D-VII BiPlane, Fokker D-I Tri-Plane, Sopwith Camel, Fokker Eindecker, Grumman, F4F Wildcat, F6F Hellcat, P51, A26, P40, PT-19, PT-22, PT-17, Corsair, F-18, F4 Phantom.

There was a formation fly-by with the Camel, Fokker D-1 Tri-Plane and Fokker D-VII. Our noon time show was given by Ken Karpinski, Jr. flying his electric pterodactyl to the song "Alley Oop". He was fast to explain it was the first warbird! He even put invasion stripes on the wings. LOL! Thanks Ken.

In conclusion, it was a really enjoyable day. Thanks everyone that could attend and we hope to see ya back next year!
