Commemorative Air Force Visit #1 — C-45 pt.1

The Commemorative Air Force AIRPOWER TOUR began arriving at Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport Monday, August 8, 2016. Their C-45, PT-13 and T-34 were first on the ground; the B-29 arrived a little after 1:00. This series of Gallery posts will present every picture I thought of acceptable quality. To better serve visitors each installment will “focus” on each CAF aircraft starting with the Beech C-45. Additional galleries will feature additional aircraft photographed when I was on the ramp during the CAF visit, and a final installments will share broad views showing CAF activity and a display of a restored US Army Jeep and a one-morning display by a local re-enactor’s organizaion.

Sincere THANKS to the Commemorative Air Force whose visiting personnel grated me “carte blanche,” permission to AeroKnow Museum and me to photograph their priceless aircraft  when they were present at our airport and away from the airport as well. Without their most generous cooperation, many of the pictures you will see in this series, posted  every six or seven days, would not have been possible.

Pictures were taken by Job Conger, Director AeroKnow Museum, and are shared in a thumbnail grid format, up to 25 pictures at a time.  Click on any for a larger image and back to return to the mosaic. Questions and comments are welcome.
