re: #133 albusteve

I know the old CAF had one,,,it was flying cross country a number of years ago and could not get permission to land at Battle Creek so it came down in Kalamazoo…and you guessed it…we saw that one come in and land too, just by coincidence…we drove right over to it…and the crew st up their little info gig, we paid a few bucks and clamored around through it…no pic tho, and I don’t recall her name…at the time it might have been the only airborne 29…if I heard the name I’d probably remember it

I got to climb around in a PBY Catalina and a B-17 in western NY back in the early 90s. And also attend an airshow there a year later with a Thunderbirds appearance that included an Ontario group bringing in the only flying Lancaster in North America. Plus a lot of other old warbirds.

That group had some sort of spat and broke up. Part of it moved down to Elmira, NY to use a concrete field and I’m not sure what has happened to the side that owned the grassfield. And I think they ended up selling off the B-17 at some point. (Yep. Google indicates that the plane is now based in California.)
