My son is a cadet member of the local Commemorative Air Force which is currently playing host to The Arizona Commemorative Air Force’s B-17G - Sentimental Journey. We went down to the airfield this morning and watch her come in, along with the wings C-53 and T-6 Texan. I thought maybe some might appreciated a couple close up photos are an actively flying B-17 along with a D-Day Invasion flown C-53.
The kid has had many opportunities to fly in the C-53, and did so as recent as last weekend. He turns 18 here in a few months and will trade in his cadet status for Colonel which will allow him more opportunities to be involved with the care and flying preparation of the C-53.
In one of the photos, the wings T-6 Texan is at the rear of the B-17. They all flew over together, this morning, from March Air Reserve Field, where they were on display for an air show this past weekend.
