Paktika Province, Afghanistan.
We have had near record snow falls at KBAF (72").
This historic DC-3 is now hanging from the ceiling in the WWII museum in New Orleans. This aircraft served with the 9th Air Force/4th Pathfinder Squadron during WWII. Following the war, the aircraft was sold to the Finnish Air Force, where it served until 1970. In 1976, it participated in the filming of A Bridge Too Far. In 1985, it was sold to a small U.S. cargo company and served as a cargo carrier with various small companies until it was sold to the museum in 2006. I personally had the distinct honor of flying this aircraft all over the U.S. and Canada in the late 1990s early 2000s. Despite its high time, it was the best-flying aircraft in our fleet of DC-3s.
Two Curtiss P-40 Warhawks at AirVenture 2010. The closest is painted in the colors of the 11th Air Force based in Alaska during WWII and uses a design of the Aleut people who lived on the Aleutian Islands. The farther is painted in the classic colors of the AVG Flying Tigers.
I have seen some pictures from that show, and thought this is just as good. [Ed. Note We'll go along with that!]
