    I do love the 38's - remeber them flying in squadron over my parent's house heading to Wright Patterson AFB when I was real young.

    GREAT capture!!!

    Great shots. I really like 38 with the D-Day stripes. I got to see Glacier Girl last year at Nellis. Lousy weather though.
     
  5. Thanks Chris...
     
  6. True, but I'll bet it was a lot better for her that the previous 50 years :biggrin:

    Great shots, good to see 3 of them together. Wasn't all that long ago there was only one airworthy.
     
  8. Thanks...
    Actually there are about 6 airworthy P-28's now.. there are two out here in California most of the time.. the silver D-day striped one and the 23-Skidoo from Planes of Fame..
