    Wife and I just got back from a trip to Yellowstone. On the way back we stopped at Ephrata Airport. These shots were from my phone, I haven't had a chance to download the Nikon pictures yet. Pretty cool to trace the footsteps of the film. Alot has changed, but not alot has changed, if that makes sense. The hangars have received some much needed attention but it did alter the looks of the buildings. More to come...

    Thanks guys...I'll be honest with you guys...I have no idea. I was told it was from the movie and that is it. It has a lot of very visible corrosion on the bottom of the wing. I didn't get inside of it but it looks pretty rough. Half of the paint matches the movie and half looks to be an attempt at a WWII paint job.

    They need to just give it to me, and let me restore it.
