Steve,

Any chance you could send me a copy of the file, would quite like a stab at it.

Sure, Mark: pm me your email address and I'll add you to the Dropbox folder.

Hi guys,

Just been playing around in PS with some older shots, hope you like. Looking forward to Duxford on Sunday, hopefully the weather will improve here in the UK (ever the optimist!)

Loving all the versions we're seeing of this aircraft. Both in the air and on the ground. Quite the history on this P-51 as well.

Does anyone know what the "A" means after the year on the kill symbols (as in 9-27-44A)? Maybe Jan-Arie does?

Perhaps "A" means "Aerial" ?

Dropping back to Chino for a bit...
First time I've ever seen a PBY-5A in flight. Not what I'd call graceful, but certainly majestic. Must have been a heaven-sent sight for downed flyers!

It is actually one of the few 51's that actually saw combat still flying.

Yes, but with a 55 year hiatus while she lay buried in a beet field. Doesn't sound like much more than the nameplate actually saw combat, I'm afraid.

Not sure where Lynn, but I am pretty sure it's not KGTU.

You're probably right, it just looks like a North departure on 36...

I was at my local field, KEIK, this morning, having the Remos washed by a couple of young women pilots raising money for their expenses in the upcoming All Women's Transcontinental Air Race. All of a sudden, the ramp rats started pointing at the sky, and what should appear overhead but the B-17 Memphis Belle. All I had was the 70-200 and just time enough to raise the camera and fire off a few frames before she disappeared behind the hangars. Very cool: I didn't realize she was in town for the holiday weekend. I doubt I'll have time to get over to KBJC to see her up close; my chorus is singing at the dedication of the Colorado Freedom Memorial tomorrow and the Belle will only be here one more day.

The two young pilots are 22 and 27, respectively; each has already earned more ratings than you can shake a stick at, and have made a good start toward an aviation career. Good on 'em.

Nice catch & really fun shot!

I so wish I'd found my true passion much, much earlier in life. #wouldacouldashoulda

One from Chino where sometimes, you just can't back up any farther!

I never would have noticed. Would you mind cloning me out? That orange vest has nothing to do with the shot.
