    Great to hear you were able to make it by, FLYBOYJ!
    It is really nice, isn't it!
    It turned out so much nicer than we had imagined.

    re:
    Hey there! I don't know and I'd have to ask. Which one is it?

    It's under the "About" tab, click " Museum Development",

    Hi AuntieM,

    This was the picture I found on your website. It would be the one on the right with the Indian head on the tail. Its a B-25 Mitchel but I cant quite make out the name on the side of the aircraft for the nose art.

    Thanks in advance
    Paul

    Sounds like "In the Mood".
    I'll check the picture and see if I can't find out.



    BTW...the website/s do not belong to me. I'm a wife of a WWII Aircraft Restorations Mechanic. :)

    How funny, now the picture shows up. Guess we have to log in first to see the images. :oops:

    Yes, that is "In the Mood".
    You can barely see in that picture, but there is a blond bombshell in a black nightie there.
    There are a few other pictures of her on the site too.

    Hi AuntieM,

    This sounds like the perfect excuse for a road-trip!

    Thanks for passing on the information, from the looks of it, the museum has some great machines!

    By the way, if you're a forum member and have been logged in and viewing attachments, the images will stay in your computer's cache for the duration of your internet session. For those folks who aren't members, they aren't able to see attached images at all, unless they join up! :thumbleft:
