Winston-Salem Airshow 2014
Hi Kids, The show was last weekend, although the weather was crappy the show must go on! So it did! Low clouds and threatening rain can't keep some good performers down!
Might as well start out with a mega-heavy, a B-17 Flying Fortress! You could buy a ride in this bad boy too! God only knows what kinda fuel burn we're talking here, so don't expect it to be cheap! This one is painted like the Memphis Bell, and is an early model. No chin turret!
Sure, why not buy a Harrier? I think this one is an ex- USMC AV-8B.
As I was driving away, they were still setting off explosions! The smoke was much more impressive earlier, but it took me a few secs to grab my camera!
I've seen this one driving around on Country Club road all summer long! Very straight!
Some poor sap got this thing here, so I might as well take a picture of it. A 2CV, France's idea of the VW Beetle. I think these things had about 15 horsepower when first released, clawing its way up to about 23 by the time production blessedly stopped. Reminds me of the time we rented a Renault 4 on vaca in Europe. Ugh.
