Finally got around to cropping and editing some of my pics from the weekend.  Was great to see the 2 flying B-29s there......Doc was on static display most of the weekend (except for a VIP 20 min flight early Saturday morning), but just having both there was special.  Enjoy!

Possibly my favorite picture from the whole weekend.  Anyone into photography will understand.......I use a 50-500mm lens (big sucker!) and this was taken handheld at 1/70 shutter speed.  Since I go every year as a reenactor, I already had tons of photos of most of the planes (alot are repeat visitors)...so I decided to really work on my photography skills.

Wow, that's some show. I recognize Whiskey 7 (C-47) from the museum in Geneseo, NY, up closer to me. I went to a show in Geneseo, probably 30 years ago where they had  7 or 8 flying B-17's. That was a sight. Thanks for the pics. You're clearly a talented photographer.

Thanks for looking guys, and the kind words.  I have thousands of pictures from the weekend (seriously!), so it's nice to be able to share with people.

 

STG44, most aircraft came very late Friday.  A few may have snuck in Saturday morning.  I arrived about 730 am on Friday to set up my tent and stuff, and the only planes I saw were the B-17, C-45, and B-29 Fifi!  I think everything on the list made it except for the CAF Corsair, which apparently had engine issues.
