at Grand Junction's Walker Field.

The local paper says they will be on hand from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm Monday and 9:00 am to 1:00 pm Tuesday at West Star Aviation's facility.

"Visitors to the display will be able to enter the planes and tour the interiors." "Adults can tour bothe aircraft for $8 and the cost for childern 12 and under is $4.
"The foundation offers rides in the planes for $400 per person, which the foundation said is a tax-deductable donation.
"To have a flight, we need to have a minimum of six and a maximum of eight to cover the cost" The flights last about 30 minutes, and anyone interested may call (978)562-9182 and leave a message."

I'll be there with camera. But no flights for me.

I flew in the B-24 "The Dragon's Tail" out here in CA last year. Took a 30 min. flight out over the ocean and could have dropped a flour bomb on my house on the way back. Very interesting to experience what my uncle did in WWII in the Pacific. You can, if you want, sit in some of the turrets but it's a little scary walking around thru the narrow passages realizing if you step on the nose wheel door or the bomb doors you might take a ride.

My dad helped build the B-24's in San Diego. A little irony that his own brother died in one.
