I saw a B-52H flying overhead last Thursday afternoon. He was flying at about 4,000 feet, going West from the Thumb tip area of Michigan, towards the center of the state
Originally shared by +Fred Robel It was a really neat sight, and caused me to reflect on how long it has been since I have seen one flying with my own eyes. About 25 years. Not since Wurtsmith AFB closed up here in N. Michigan. I looked it up, and there are only two AFB's left that have them stationed: Barksdale, and Minot. Nowhere near here. Perhaps he was going to an airshow? Or maybe some kind of wargame exercise, as there is a bombing range in the middle of Michigan, near Grayling Army base. Not sure, as the low altitude I observed him at, wouldn't be suitable for a long flight. At any rate, it was a treat to see the old BUFF again. (photo via the US Air force site, taken by Airman 1st Class Rebecca Imwalle ) EDIT: I just found a reference to a B-52 doing a flyby in Toledo on Thursday, where someone took a nice photo of it flying over the line of Thunderbird F-16's. There is an airshow this weekend down there. Maybe this was the same B-52 I saw (though that is waaay South of where I saw it) #aviation #aircraft #airplane […]

Warbird Wednesday!
Originally shared by +Fly By Photography January 27, 1937 marks the date of the first flight of the Lockheed P-38 Lightning. The P-38, designed for the US Army Air Corps in 1937, features two booms containing the engines with a central pod making up the cockpit. The P-38 was the only US fighter aircraft that was in production when the US entered World War II to the end of the war. The Germans called the P-38 the Fork-Tailed Devil. The Japanese called it Two Planes, One Pilot. Over 10,000 P-38s were produced. Of that total, only 5 are still airworthy. The P-38 Lightning in my photograph belongs to Fagen Fighters World War II Museum in Granite Falls, Minnesota. She arrived at Culpeper Airport on the morning of May 7, 2015 to take part in the Arsenal of Democracy Fly Over of Washington DC on May 8th, the 75th anniversary of VE Day. "Misty Morning Arrival"http://goo.gl/z1qsd2 Delayed by weather on the way from Minnesota, Fagen Fighter's P-38 Lighting, Ruff Stuff, finally arrives at Culpeper Airport at 7:30 am on May 7, 2015, for the Arsenal of Democracy. #warbird #p38 #lightning #p38lightning #plane #usaaf #armyairforces #airforce #aviation #photography #canon #flybyphotography

Well the 2014 Travis AFB Air Show was quite good
