    A member of the Arizona Wing of the Commemorative Air Force works on Maid in the Shade in the CAF Hangar at Falcon Field in Mesa, AZ. It is a North American Aviation TB-25N Mitchell. The aircraft saw 15 Combat Missions against the Axis in Italy during 44' and 45'.

    I had the opportunity to stop by the CAF Museum in Mesa, AZ a few weeks ago. I had an absolute blast checking out the aircraft and talking to some of those involved. I plan to make this place a must visit each time I visit my folks who are lucky enough to live nearby.

    I'll post some more pics up later if anyone cares to see.

    I was sure glad to see the 25 at the Midland Odessa show, too bad they had mag problems. It happens though, I sure wish they would let us set up our ground crew display at the next event. All well.
