    Here is the fly in that Lou and I went to the other weekend. It's five pages long, a link at the bottom of each page will take you forward.

    It really was such a fun time and the museum has such great old aircraft. I of all is like the Golden age aircraft, but now they are definitely my favorite.

    Thanks!  Really going to try and go back next year and get some pictures of some more aircraft in the museum.  I love the golden age aircraft and I really fell for this aircraft, a Boeing Model 40C.  Here's a video with some pictures and video of the aircraft, nice song sung by the group that did all of those Snoopy songs.

    What a great show that must have been Brad.  Looks like you had a great time.  I was totally impressed by the number of tri-motors and the interior pics are awesome, of course i suppose that the Texans and the Fury stole the show.

    I suppose it's risky to fly any of these aircraft, but the World War II planes are probably trickier to fly since most of these older ones tend to fly slower and are more forgiving.  A lot of these planes are probably even better than when they were new.
     
    The show was a lot of fun, a little cool, but better than the previous day where it rained most of the afternoon.  The last time I was there in 2007, there were three trimotors, now there were four and the hulk of a fifth.  I thought it was interesting that the fabric covered trimotor had a plush interior and then the corrugated metal Ford trimotor had wicker seats!  That had to be rough in turbulence?  The Texans and Sea Fury were very popular, warbirds always are and they were flying, but I was also surprised at how many families were there with their kids, especially the younger kids and the vast majority of the kids were very well behaved and really in awe of the aircraft, and they seemed to be more so with the museum aircraft, probably because you just don't see stuff like that at airports or flying much anywhere.  There was a helicopter giving rides coming in frequently landing right behind where the Sea Fury turned on the ramp in one of the pictures, just to the right of that, there was a 1929 Travel-air that was giving rides, the open front cockpit was made to seat two people and they were constantly giving rides, they were also there in 2007.
