Default These just flew over my house

I know a warbird when I hear one. Ran out of the house about a half-hour ago when I heard the B-17. Literally saw the tail-end of it. Ran out faster again twenty minutes later and caught a beautiful view of the B-24. Hopped on Bing and found out they're from Massachusetts headed up for the weekend about 45 minutes north. So I know where I'm going tomorrow.

Most Cool!

Nothing sounds like those engines!

Consolidated B-24J Liberator - The Collings Foundation

Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress - The Collings Foundation

They usually sell rides on them.

Tally-ho!

Cool! One of the bennies of working across the street from Boeing Field and the museum of flight, is that there's usually some pretty cool planes buzzing around.

The only better-sounding bomber is the Merlin-engined Avro Lancaster. It's like four P-51 Mustangs in harmony.

Default Nose Art

The Pièce de résistance for me is the nose art and paint schemes. Kind of like what the Lafayette Escadrille did in WWI.

Thanks. I was bored and really needed a chore. This monitor isn't going to clean itself.

He whose name shall not be spoken is actually listed on corporate email as a manager.
