Here’s a handful of pics from the weekend (Saturday that is). The weather forecast said sun all weekend until Friday night when they changed their tune. We made the best of the gray drizzly weather and caught the parade on Shore to Fort Williams. Then it was off to the Air Expo at the Portland Jetport. It was just Leo and I and we had the best time checking out all the cool airplanes. We were able to board each plane and ask any questions to the military servicemen who where especially friendly and accommodating. If you haven’t been to the Air Expo then mark your calendar now and we’ll see you there next year! Here’s the pics;
Leo was also very interested in the snow removal truck on the right.
HH-60 Black Hawk
The USAF B-2 Spirit “Stealth Bomber” in flight. Your looking at just about 1 billion dollars right there!!
From this angle it looks like some kind of punctuation mark.
“Miss Hap” – General Hap Arnold’s personal airplane. A B-25 Mitchell 1940. Just looking at the style and design takes me back to a time I’ve lived only in print through fascinating novels set in the time.
Douglas C47 Skytrain (a.k.a. DC3 & Dakota) – 1940. I love how they paint images of lovely ladies on their planes.
Then off to Wild Willies for a burger! Voted best in New England.
Leo looking like a cool guy.
and then back home.
