Collings Foundation B-25 did a couple fly overs of downtown Toledo and shortly afterwards their B-17 "Nine-o-Nine" flew over headed northwest, now sitting at Toledo Express Airport.

I barely got a gIimpse, but I believe that FIFI just flew over my house. I live in Fort Collins, CO, about 60 miles north of Denver.

I did some of my growing up in Safford and my earliest warbird memory is that of one of the Whittington brothers stopping for gas in "Precious Metal". I was only about six years old at the time but I still remember the high speed low pass and very steep climb out. Awesome!

At aprox. 9.30 AM in Zeist in the Netherlands a very nice looking Douglas A4 Skyraider moving towards the Dutch National Army and Air Museum which is just a couple of miles north of here.
It was just to far away from me to see the registration number, but I think it was 125716/F-AZFN - France/Didier Chable since it carried fueltanks as well as rockets.

Its that time of year here again, the Collings are operating out of NASA Moffett and the two big bombers have been rumbling around the hills here in the West Valley. :)
I have also heard the Mustang, but it was long gone by the time i could look for it. 8)

At 14.50 CET a very nice looking OV-10B Bronco moving north-east at only 1200 ft.
According to Dutchradar it is in private ownership in the UK.
Probably on it's way to Oostwold airshow.

Saturday was the annual Felts Field Neighbor Day.

John Sessions brought over his P-51B, L-20, F8F, TBM (technically not his but considered part of the collection), and DC-3 in prewar Pan Am markings and a 1950s corporate interior.
The Beaver and the "3" sold rides, while the others did a nice flying display.
It was great fun to see the TBM taxi out, close the bomb bay doors and unfold its wings.
Addison Pemberton flew his newly completed Goose, as did the local T-28 (natural metal in USAF markings).
Also, the local Stearman formation group did a three ship fly-by. A New Standard sold biplane rides as did the local helicopter training operation...they kept 2 R-44s busy all day.

All free and well attended.
