but much more. These are photos of the 1948 and 1949 Cleveland Air Races showing mass military flyovers, what looks like hundreds of thousands of people and a wide range of warbird racers. Must have been something to witness back then. The links to the photo series is below with explanations for each photo if you have the time to explore. Beautiful photos.

Without a doubt this is your best post to date Mark. Absolutely awesome, awesome stuff. (I'm sure you meant '48 and '49 for the dates though!) Keep 'em coming! :)
