On Monday afternoon, I was at Cleveland Hopkins watching the T-Birds take-off for their act at Burke Lakefront for the Cleveland Air Show, when about 10 minutes after they took off, a Kuwaiti Air Force C-17 landed and parked near the tower. I almost thought it was a C-141 as it was landing because of the gray and white paint scheme which reminded me of the one the Air Force painted their transports in before going to camo.

That was "Miss Mitchell" - it has been out and about today providing history flights/rides (the most authentically-restored B-25 you can pay to take a ride on) ahead of the hangar dance taking place this evening at the CAF MN Wing hangar at Fleming Field in South St. Paul.

Saw either an Cessna 337 or an O-2 fly over the Stratford train station. Probably coming from BDR.

Driving home from church last Sunday I looked at an shape I caught in the corner of my eye and saw, plain as day, a B-17. That's definitely a surprise. Must have been Collings at Lunken Field.

On Saturday, the haze and smoke from distance wildfires lifted a bit for the first time in a few weeks you could actually see aircraft.

I saw the locally-based Bucker Jungmann, ex-Ernest K. Gann (author) and Mira Slovak (well know aerobatics pilot in the 60s).

Spent the weekend in Napa CA - there for the Indycar Finale at Sears Point Raceway - and there was a DC-3 flying over the valley both days.
I presume some operation is doing 'wine country air tours' in a DC-3. (?)

Was pretty cool having the rumbling radials as background noise when we were BBQing, ect.
