This is a repost from my thread over in the New England hometown forum.

The Collings Foundation has 4 WWII warbirds visiting the Oxford airport from the 4th though the 8th of September. I stopped by with my fiance this afternoon and got there a bit too late as they were closing up but I did get some pictures of the B24 and B25 taxiing back into their parking spots after some ride flights. They have their B17G, B24J, B25J, and the rare P-51C Mustang there. Unfortunately the Mustang had been put into the hangar so I didn't get to see it. I was pretty upset since I drove from Bridgeport and that's pretty much the primary reason I went as I love the razorback Mustangs. I will go back on Monday. Here are the pictures, I will also be going to the air show at Westover AFB on Sunday and will post pictures of that too. Enjoy

I'll admit, I slapped the monkey over that first picture...

I have flown in the B17, worth every penny.

Mr Collins wife is a pilot rated in all the planes and she is hot as heck too. Will see if I can find a pic of her.

Paid the $$$ and flew in the B-17 Nine-O-Nine last year. Worth every penny!!!!
Great to visit with the vets / former air crews who came out to see the aircraft.
