Some weeks ago there was a discussion about the planes exhibited by the
Collings Foundation. www.cfdn.org I got to see them today.
This weekend they are in Worcester MA. As I was driving up the road to
the airport the B-17 flew right across in front of me as it ws landing.
I parked and walked to the fence just as the B-25 taxied to its parking
It was great to see the planes, but listening to some of the guys
waiting was better. Some vets of WWII were talking about their jobs
with the various branches of service during the war. Easy to look at
them as a bunch of old farts out for the day but these were the guys
that fought for our freedom and put their lives on the line.
I don't recall who mentioned it to me here, but, thanks. I had a very
nice afternoon seeing history.
Oh, no I did not fly in the P-51 for $2200. I forgot my checkbook.
