Here's another cool one. This is the museum where I volunteer. The bird in front of the 2 hangars is the C-46 Command. You can also see a B-25 in the upper left and 2 SNJs just to the right of the B-25, with a Broussard in between them. In the second row on the right you can spot a Long-EZ.

i've seen that before when i tried to play a video of the lanc, someone said i need google earth, i downloaded it, then when i clicked the link for it it just kept taking me back to that...........
That's awesome! I've seen some flying planes around busy airports and occasionally at a US air force bases on google. Crazy!

Van Nuys airport?

I thought more people would be able to indentify this. This is a easy quiz!

You are correct, this located at Van Nuys Airport. But can you indentify what aircraft and aircraft group we are looking at in this picture?
