Saw a B-24 fly over Brookings Oregon today at about 12:30 PM. Maybe around 5000 feet, heading NE. Anyone know what plane it was and where it's headed?

Collings Tour is in Aurora this weekend (6/15~6/17)

Just saw the morning C-47/DC-3 freighter sked leave Hay River headed for Yellowknife. I can still hear her as I write this.

Beaver on floats, plus a similarly equipped 206.

Also, a RV something or other (tandem seat).

Last night, at the Museum of Flight in Seattle, I attended the dedication of the new Viet Nam exhibit. Over 700 people attended including Viet Nam era veterans representing all branches of US Military service.
Part of the event was a fly over honoring the veterans with;
A pair of Hueys
Cobra gunship
Hughes Loach
Douglas Skyraider
Douglas A-26 Invader.
On display at the event a Boeing B-52.

In addition the Collings tour was operating across the street @ BFI with their;
B-17
B-24
B-25
P-51

Wisconsin has it's share of things that make life here a challenge sometimes. Hot and humid summers filled with mosquitoes and wasps, winters that can be really cold, snowy and icy with salt that destroys the cars and roads... But for an aviation nut, it does get really special and there's no place I'd rather be. Within the next week and a half we have: the hot air balloon festival in Waterford, the heavy bombers weekend in Madison, the Janesville warbird weekend airshow and the air and water show on Milwaukee's lakefront. Then, Oshkosh to top it all off. On the way home from work today I look up and see the Thunderbirds in a diamond, smoke on following a WI ANG KC-135 with it's refueling boom out with another KC-135 on their wing on the way to the lakefront to practice! love this state!

It's kind of goofy with Oshkosh and all, but driving home I saw a B-17 landing somewhere just north of Chicago.

Some Collings aircraft stopped at Dupage County airport KDPA, west of Chicago after their Oshkosh visit and stayed from Monday through Wednesday. Their B-17, B-24, and B-25 were available for inspection and rides. I live about 3.5 miles from that field and today they were using the long runway 2. I believe they are heading to LaFayette , IN this afternoon for the same purpose. About 2pm I was on the phone with my brother and two of the above flew low over my house with all of that round sound at full glory. We were discussing some flight simulation computer questions at the time and that magnificent sound was the perfect background theme.

I heard the arrival from my office today, but didn't see them come in. Hoping to pop over on my lunch hour to check things out tomorrow. It's been a while since I've seen the Collings aircraft.

I got there after work just as the B-17 and 24 were taking off for the last flight and will do the same tomorrow. The Mustang isn't here yet for some reason. Flightaware shows it 'last seen by Danville, Il' yesterday.

The Mustang made it sometime today.

When I was walking from the parking lot to the terminal building tonight an ambulance was coming in. By the time I got inside I missed an incident by 30 seconds. A 172 with a stuck rudder had made one approach on runway 23, gone around, landed on 28 (90 degree crosswind), ran off the runway, across the other runway and came to rest in the grass. Glad the pilot is ok! Witchcraft had to stay up a little longer than normal until they checked and cleared the runway after the incident.
