uploading is S-L-O-W......these are the last of the static shots. ALL of these planes flew a demo! I've got over 100 pictures in all, so I'll only post the BEST looking here. But there will still be a lot. ALL the pics I take are good!

Thanks for posting the photos. The Silver Wings appear to be Army. Did they replace the Golden Knights Jump Team? They were Army also.

That is cool that your son got some Silver Wings.

R C...I don't know if they replaced them, or they have more than one team now.

Jeff, Garrett loved it!

Monkey, there are more Warbirds in flight pics coming soon.

Thanks for posting the photos. I used to live in Alice, Texas and my dad was in the crop dusting business, so I spent lots of time at the airport. At that time (1950's) the T-28's from the Naval Air Station used the airport for touch and go's. They really have a distinctive sound for a big radial engine.

My dad had 3 B-25's that he was converting to large sprayers for a job in Canada. The job ended before he got them converted, so he sold them. Only got to ride in one of them.

At that time you could buy them for $5,000 at Davis Montham AFB in Arizona. You could also buy P-51's for $2,500 each. Oh, the things we could have done if we only knew.

My dad had 3 B-25's that he was converting to large sprayers for a job in Canada. The job ended before he got them converted, so he sold them. Only got to ride in one of them.

At that time you could buy them for $5,000 at Davis Montham AFB in Arizona. You could also buy P-51's for $2,500 each. Oh, the things we could have done if we only knew.

WOW! A b25 for 5000 bucks? Whata bargain!!!




Glad y'all like them! Spread the word so that others can see them!
