Life with Leo

Old Planes

I sprung Leo from kindergarten early so we could go visit a B-24 and a B-17 at the Beverly Airport.  Here are some photos of the visit.  They are part of the Collings Foundation tour.  I don’t want to know any more about them, but the planes were cool.  I liked seeing some of the 4000 feet of wire strung around pulleys to keep things moving in the right direction.

Self portrait in the spinner of the B-24.  You can see the B-17 on the side.  You can also have a coffee table made from one of these.
