I should have some pics tomorrow as Fifi the B-29 is at the Kankakee County Airport through Sunday. If you live in the area it will be worth the trip. She is on the way to Oskosh, Wisconsin for the big airshow there.

Great day at Kankakee County Airport! Watched the B-25, C-45, Stearman and T-6 give rides. Extra attraction was the P-51 that arrived around noon. I took lots of pics and a couple of videos. Some came out pretty good, see what you think.
Here is the link to the album.

Me at the Yellow Rose B-25.


C-45 in British markings.


Fifi's data plate.


Looks like R2D2 is flying the P-51! This shot was purely by accident.


Best part of the day was seeing a former B-25 crew chief get out of his wheel chair and climb up the ladder into the B-25. I thought he was going to climb all the way into the cockpit the way he was going. It was like he went back in time.

Really nice pics, nice sunny day too.  I've seen that C-45 a few times at airshows. Last time was down in Yuma.

Wow, all sorts there.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

The F-22 and F-35 look as if you could actually go up and touch them, was that the case?
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)
