The BIG BOYS were in town on tour today, rain or not I wouldn't miss seeing them again. Thought you folks might like to see 'em too.
First and last picture is of the only flying B-24J Liberator in the world, the others are of a B-17G.

My 2nd most favoret air cooled gas engine, a Wright 3350 radial engine,
i worked for ABX AIR at the wilmington air freight base in Ohio for a few years, Bravo bulding transferred to Delta building my last year, i helped load mail onto twin engine prop plane going to Canada and Nova Scotia, nothing like the sound of a twin engine 9 cylinder prop plane idling in the yard before take off,
thanks for the pic.s and the memorys, those planes are flying museums,

I don't blame you for being late to work. I've never been close to a B-24 and would have a hard time passing on the opportunity to see one.
Thanks for the photos.
