USAF_B29_CLT_0512E_JP_small.jpg
USAF_B29_CLT_0512E_JP_small.jpgWhat a catch! I came to the airport to get the Gabon 777 leaving and completely forgot that this B-29 (and the B-24) were performing flights for the general public. I went crazy when I saw this B-29 going by and got this great shot of it, then another one when it landed

Total flight time, about 45 minutes

B24_CLT_0512_JP_small.jpgAmazing timing! 16 passengers on board walking away from the airplane! I just got to the airport with Andrew (my son), I get out of the car- and this is what I see! The smoke is still there as this historical B-24 broke it's nose gear and skidded down the runway until it stopped at this location

9A_dc7startup.jpg
9A_dc7startup.jpgUnlike today's props and jets, back in the 50's and 60's, this is what a passenger sitting in my seat would see when the engine "fires up". The fire and some of the oil you see there are completely normal for this vintage airliner
