Hi Brad.

Unfortunately this year seemed to continue the annual trend of less and less aircraft attending Tico.

Col. Robert Morgan from the Memphis Belle was at the show, which was a nice surprise.

Some of the notable appearances on Sunday were:

FM2 Wildcat (Dick Foote)
P-51D "Obsession"
P-51D "Crazy Horse"
B-25 "Killer Bee"
B-17 "Memphis Belle"
Skyraider "Naked Fanny"
A pair of Stearmans
9 or so T6/SNJs
Pair of L-39s
Half a dozen or so T-28s
Some light liason aircraft (Navion, O-2s, etc.)

I've posted a full report along with some photos at http://www.warbirdjournal.com/tico2004.asp
