That is a bad ass photo. Did you have the pleasure of taking it? If so, how was the ride?

I wish I took that photo. It came from today's paper at www.adn.com, some photos of the B-25 flying alongside a P-51, too.

Wow! That's how I always imagined it would look like from the nose of that incredible airplane.

And this one: [img]http://www.adn.com/ips_rich_content/918-AirShow10.jpg[/img] Absolutely beautiful.

I think Turnagain Arm is one of the most beautiful drives I have ever been on. I went down by the water to shoot my .45 baby Eagle there last year, while the tide was coming in, Dang. It came in so fast that I had to walk backwards while loading my mag! Later I saw a warning sign about not going down on the flats, & I could sure see why. I hope heaven is a lot like Alaska.[:D] Great picture, thanks Raven

Looks beautiful raven, the planes and the scenery. Thanks for posting. I'm a huge fan of airplanes, especially warplanes.

Gotta love those Warbirds. I went to the Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola last week. Too bad all those babies can't still fly.

My grandfather used to maintain B-25s in the Pacific theatre during the war. I think he was a crew cheif. He was a pilot himself (or at least he was after the war). If you ever get the chance, check out the American Airpower Heritage Museum in Midland, Tx. From what I hear, it's the largest collection of WWII aircraft, kept by the CAF. And they're ALL AIRWORTHY. I plan on trying to take a day trip out there. Many pictures will be taken, and posted for you guys. ;)

Raven, I don't suppose you have that in hi-res 1024x768, would you? WALLPAPER! [:D]

Nope, that's the biggest one they had that I saw. Maybe you can ask the paper/photographer? [url]www.adn.com[/url]

The only time of year that the CAF at Midland has all their aircraft there is for the big airshow in September, otherwise the planes are based at whichever "Wing" sponsors it. Pensacola or the Air Force museum in Dayton would be my top picks. Thanks for the pic Raven.
