A Special View

What a great sight to see while looking out my office window.The Collings Foundation B17G, "Nine O Nine" was turning left base to final for runway 19 at ILG this afternoon and it was in perfect view out my office window, and the boss wonders why I stare out there so much.

This required an immediate road trip to um....check on my Airport Terminal project....yeah that's it, the terminal HVAC project at the Wilmington Airport Terminal, hold my calls.
I only got to take a few pictures since everyone on the OP's staff was busy and I didn't want to get in the way. The Wings of Freedom Tour is in town for a few days.

A few years back I was fortunate enough to be in Paris during the Airshow and somehow found a reason to get out there for the day. I was siting on the lawn enjoying the sun when suddenly it got shady. I stood up just in time to touch the wind as it was being towed out to the flight line. Wonderful old machines.
