Was orbiting the city along the front range.  Sound was beautiful.  Don't know which one it was.  Tried to get a pic but was too late.

How many of these things are still flying?

I think there are only like 14 still flying. Might be a few more, but not much.

I saw it yesterday when I was down there.  Looked like the Nine O Nine.  Despite having been up for about 30 hours, I still took a minute to listen to those Wright Cyclones rumble.  I love that airplane.

I flew on a B-25 (the Pacific Prowler) a few years ago.  

It was awesome (and scary as s**t!) crawling into the nose turret while airborne....

Wonder what the price tag to buy one nowadays would be?
Absolutely LOVE the sound of those engines!
