A Different Kind of Bird

Earlier this week Bill and I went to Page Field in Fort Myers to view some vintage World War II planes. Bill had the camera and got these shots.

This one is "Betty Jane" a duel-control P-51 Mustang. They were offering rides - but it was far too expensive for our thin wallets. We did watch while a younger gentleman took them up on their offer. It was neat to see it taxi and take off. I wish I could replay the sounds!

Bill tells me this is a B-17.

And this is a B-24 Liberator named
"Witch-craft." You can click on the next image for a larger view to read about it.
