    Good times today at Paine Field in Everett, WA. The Flying Heritage Collection flew their P-47 along with the Historic Flight Foundation's F7F and F8F.

    Thanks guys. I think it's a 767. It doesn't carry any markings and has been parked there for a year +. Given the USAF paint job and the the Boeing widebody factory at the other end of the runway, I almost wonder if it is (or was) some kind of test bed for the proposed tanker. Just speculation at this point...
