There are a few World War II airplanes still flying. Not just air-worthy, but actually flying all over the country as mobile museums.
Last weekend Joe and I met up with a couple of them at the Chesterfield County Airport. We got to kick the tires of a B-24 Liberator and an honest-to-god B-17 Flying Fortress. Yeehaw!
Joe running through his pre-flight checklist. Juiceboxes? Check.

That Rosie does nice work. You go girl.
I’ve been to the factory in Connecticut that made these propellers. They’re still pumping them out for C-130s and other warbirds.
