    Visiting some old "Birds"

    I spent Saturday at a WWII remembrance event and got to get up and close with some old War Birds. Here are just a few of the pictures. I haven't done anything to any of the pictures other than to crop and resize some of them.

    We start with a C45-F being used as a transport taxiing for takeoff.

    Next is a SB2C-5 Helldiver loading up its paying passenger for a once in a lifetime flight.

    Some of the planes you could get very up close and personal with, including this P-40K.

    As well as this personally owned P-51 Mustang. How many people have one of these in their garage?

    They were also offering flights in the SNJ-4, which is the Navy version of the AT-6 Texan.

    Other countries had planes represented, as this Spitfire shows.

    These were just the "little birds", I haven't gotten to the pictures of the big ones yet, B-17, B-25J, B-29, as well as the big transports, C-46, C-47D, C-54E.
