EAA Fly 2006

By Chad Weisensel

Also in the general area was an A-10 Warthog which I personally think is one of the coolest looking planes of our time.

Next it was on to the WW2 fighters and Bombers and the first one I saw was the Avro Lancaster courtesy of our friends to the north and the Canadian Air Force. Once again this was a first for me and I was able to get some really good pics of this bird.

Also present in this area was a P-38 Lightning, F4U-Corsair, a couple B-17 Bombers and a B-24 Diamond Lil. Also above me you could hear the roar of four 1200 Horsepower Wright Cyclone engines of the B-17 Bomber Aluminum Overcast that was giving flights over the show grounds.

At this point it was time to go and see the Warbird area in which hundreds of warbirds and pilots have gathered to show off their planes.
