Hi everyone, I hope your week is faring well. It's always interesting every week as I try to figure out what I would like to post about. I hope you have noticed that I like to change it up and do different things. 😀
If you read last week's Veterans Day blog post, you will know my love of the military. If not, here's a recap below!
I'm not sure if I have shared this with everyone on the blog but I LOVE airplanes! ! ! I grew up in a Navy family. My father was in the Navy for 21.5 years and we were always around airplanes. He served aboard several aircraft carriers (one of them was an old-timer aircraft carrier from WWII) and flew on P-3 Orions, among other duties. I grew up around and near the bases, so we always saw the airplanes/jets/birds (as I like to refer to them) flying overhead. I absolutely LOVE air shows.
So, with that in mind, you can imagine my excitement when we landed on Amazing Wonders Aviation for 2012! The Boeing 314 Clipper had the beautiful 3 fins on the tail wing and we knew that that was the plane we wanted to use.
Here are several websites with more information and some beautiful photos (for Foto Friday!)
And here's an old movie reel talking about the Boeing Clipper.
