Since this is the area to post out of woodworking experiences I figured I would post mine from Sunday. Getting a good reminder of the experience now as I’m hearing the B-17 and B-24 planes about a mile or two north of my house take another morning flight as I’m attempting to get motivated for the day. Pretty distinctive sound – can’t even imagine what a squadron of those things would sound like overhead.
If you like military equipment, history, reenacting, etc … keep an eye out for the Collings Foundation as they travel the country with historic planes offering the opportunity to explore them and take a flight if you are so inclined. Definitely worth the flight experience!
They even have an operational P-51C Mustang – but the ticket $ was just out of my personal range of expenses for the day.
Anyway – check out the link above for more info, links to the Collings Foundation with scheduled stops, etc.
