Recently, The Former Confederate Air Force, Which is Now Referred To As The Commerative Air Force, Even Though I Prefer The Original Name, Was Hosting it's Annual Show & Ride Event @ Dallas Love Field Airport @ The Frontiers of Flight Museum. You Could Go Out, Pay $12.00 & in Addition To Checking Out The Museum, You Could Go Out Onto The Tarmac & Check Out The Bombers As Well. They Would Let You Climb Inside Them, Touch Them, Take Pictures of Them & Ride in Them As Well.

Yes, I Said Ride in Them As Well.

Now I'm a 6' Foot Tall, 372 Pound, Type II Diabetic, So I'm Good Just To Be Able To Walk Around For Any Length of Time, So Needless To Say, I Didn't Get Up Inside The Planes, But I Did Take A Few Good Shots of Them.

So Without Further Adoo, Here Are My Shots of The North American B-25J Mitchell Medium Bomber.

Oh, You Could Ride in This One For $350.00:

A Far Away Picture Showing Both The B-25 & The B-24. Believe It or Not, The B-24's Engines Were Running:

you've got a good camara if it was capable of capturing the propellers spinning without it looking that way.

Huh, I never thought about that.

Nice pictures Odin, thanks for sharing. I especially like the bubble rap and the plastic jug, it adds to the era accuracy. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Excellent pics again, mate. That was a very worthwhile day out and if you'd taken me along, I would have shelled out the cash for a ride in one of those beauties! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif
