I was on it last month in Norwood, Ma http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif My dad can't get into the plane anymore, so no flight for us. But he was able to get in the B-24 that was there. Did it show in NH?

Yes, there was a B-17G, a B-24J (ex Indian AF)
and a B-25, all available for rides.

Also for $400 US you could buy an hour in the T-6.

No P-51 rides this time, maybe next year.
We will definately pay for that with a smile!

The B-24 was also at the Nashua airshow repainted from "Dragon and His Tail" to "Witchcraft"

The "All American/Dragon and it's tail/Witchcraft"
was there in it's glory, as were a bevy of other
Collings Foundation aircraft.

The Collings people also flew in a Fiesler Storch
restored to better than new condition, I will
dig up a photo of it for the P base site.

It was an excellent but over crowded show.
