“Government has three primary functions. It should provide for military defense of the nation. It should enforce contracts between individuals. It should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government-- in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the cost come in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.” - Milton Friedman

P-40s are sooooo sexy.

What I've always wondered though is can they still carry working 50s in warbirds with proper paperwork? I imagine it might get complicated because tax stamps + class 3 etc. and the whole flying between states.

Yep.


That's when you know you have stupid amounts of money, when you go to the trouble and expense to put working .50's in your P-51 even though you can't actually fly it with them installed.
