In the 1980s, Paine Field in Everett, Washington, was pretty open to aviation geeks. My first up-close encounter with a flyable warbird was this Goodyear-built FG-1D Corsair named "Big Hog". It was hangered in a former Alaska Airlines maintenance center along with an ever-changing variety of interesting civil and former military aircraft, and I soon became a regular pest there. The late Jim Landry restored the fighter once operated by the New Zealand Air Force over a ten-year period, and flew it at many northwest airshows.
