    Great photos, Jim!

    I've been wanting to get up to both Madras and Tillamook and I really don't have an excuse, since they aren't really that far from Redding (KRDD)

    Thanks guys, here are a few more. I've tried to focus on the positive parts of the day. The Stearman accident is still sinking in. Here are a couple more photos. Unfortunately I forgot to set the shutter speed up for blur but I'm happy with them.

    @GrauGeist ...I went to the old museum years ago at Tillamook. It was really cool in the old blimp hangars...but this new place is beautiful, worth the trip if you tie it in with one of their events.

    You had me stumped there for a minute - I thought you'd gone to Madras in India !

    I think one of the reasons I'd like to visit the Blimp Hangar in Tillamook, is because I grew up near the Blimp Hangars in Tustin (Orange County) and the Tillamook station has some interesting WWII history.

    But yes, I'll have to put Madras at the top of my "to-do" list! :thumbleft:
