So yesterday I went to the airport to snap few Pix of the war-birds before they would take off and go to their next tour stop. next are a few pictures I was able to take from the B-24 ..dreams do come true...1.5 Hour ferry flight to New Braunfels TX. and 3 hours car ride back to Houston :smile: ..enjoy

This was my "Ride", the only Flying Consolidated B-24 Liberator out of more than 19000 that were built during and after WW II

    That is so cool!
    Do you have any shots of the interior of the B-24?

    As a fan of (especially oldschool and military) aviation, I am slightly jealous of this experience :smiley: What a beauty!

    Nice pictures, thanks for sharing. I can imagine of how awesome this opportunity was. Totally worth the 3 hours car ride back!
