The American Airpower Museum at Republic Airport, Farmingdale, NY was the
host to the various vintage craft at an air show over Jones Beach May 2011,
dad was such a talker the whole weekend he had absolutely no voice by Tuesday
from all the stories he was telling at the museum!
- Here is a review of our Air Show presentation at the museum this
Memorial Day 2011, by a professional photographer and friend.

The B-17 "Liberty Belle"
Crashed and burned early this afternoon just outside of Aurora, Illinois. All
aboard got out without any serious injury, but the aircraft was mostly consumed
in the post-crash fire. Just a sad reminder of how fragile the old planes are.
Kudos go out to the pilot who put the aircraft down on a farm just 500 feet away
from some houses. See below link for the full story.
