    Greetings All,

    I had just missed taking my son to see the Collins Foundation's B-17, 24 and 25 at Jack Northrop Field. The next week I was at Palmdale working late. Saw what appeared to be the goofiest looking C-130 crossing the field. Realized it was a B-24, ran back into the building and told my buds what was outside. Couldn't have emptied that place faster if you'd said 'FIRE.'

    Thanks evanglider,

    Will keep an eye on that site. I'd never seen a Lib in flight. From a distance, high wing and four fans the first thought is Herky Bird. Pleasant suprise. Thank you all for the welcome. Nice site!!
