This P-61C sits in the Steven F. Udzar-Hazy Center in Chantilly in her NACA (National Advisory Committee on Aeronautics) colors. NACA was formed in 1915 and became part of NASA in 1958. So it's appropriate for @rescuemedic6 call for #aerospace_monday#dailythemetag.
Another stormy morning shot taken of Hairless Joe, a C-47D Skytrain. The original Hairless Joe was flown by Lt Col Dick Cole, who was Jimmie Doolittle's co-pilot on the famous Tokyo Raid. Colonel Cole was flying with the 319th Troop Carrier Sqd, 1st Air Commando Group. @thunderovermichiganairshow
The CAF B-17G Texas Raider, is one of the last 20 built by Douglas Aircraft Company in Long Beach, CA. Beautifully painted, she pleased the crowds at @yankee_air_museum#thunderovermichigan .
The Yankee Lady B-17G was the one of the stars at the Thunder Over Michigan this past weekend. The overcast and rain ran havoc with the flight program but we got some air time. #thunderovermichigan#yankeeairmuseum
My last post tonight for #aviation_sunday#dailythemetag. The Heritage Flight at the Vectren Dayton Airshow Dayton Airshow this year put the famous P-51 Mustang together with today's US air superiority fighter, F-22 Raptor. That's an amazing spectrum of aviation history and technology. Please welcome @victor_juliet_aeroimaging Vijay, who will carry the baton for Monday. Check out his aviation portfolio for some jewels. I know Vijay will come up with a great theme. Thanks everyone for sharing today ( you still have some time).
Vintage #bnw look of Georgie's Gal, a B-25J Mitchell medium bomber of Doolittle's Tokyo Raiders fame. Taken last year at Oshkosh, we will submit to the #aviation_sunday#dailythemetag.
America' top Ace, Maj Richard I. Bong was flying this Lockheed P-38J in 1945 at Wright Field, Ohio, when the right engine blew and he made an emergency landing. All through combat Maj Bong never suffered a mechanical failure. Ironic. 🤔
Warthog love as shown at the 2018 Dayton Airshow is submitted to @ekinstagram for his #warthog_wednesday#dailythemetag. Gotta love the dents on the nose. This A-10 belongs to the Flying Tigers of the legacy from Gen Chenault in the China-Burma-india fame.
