    Well there's a new flock of butter bars coming out of the USAFA. No T-Bird fly over or airshow so several WW2 warbirds did the traditional fly over during the hat toss. 2 B-25s, a TBM, Wildcat, Corsair, P-47 and 3 Mustangs. Too far for good pics, I didn't bring my camera but did get this one with my cell phone.

    Well caught Joe. Will the new 'Butter Bars' be real pilots, or drone drivers these days?!

    I miss Colorado... :( There were always some WW2 aircraft flying around, especially in the Summer. I usually volunteered for the Rocky Mountain Fly-in. Now I have to wait until I can move back. You're a lucky man Joe. :)

    As cool as that is, I think it really sucks that USAFA grads get airplanes to flyover their graduation that their grandfathers (or great grandfathers) flew.
