Planes of Fame Museum - December 1999 & February 2002

Page 1

Visited the Planes of Fame Museum on the day that the A6M5 Zero flew. It was quite exciting. Aerial photos are not very good because of the extreme range. It was obvious that this was not an official air show (FAA) cuz the Zero flew quite high. The pictures are mostly w/ 28-70 zoom on the ground & 170-700 mm in taxi and air.


Mitchell B-25 - 1999

This is the Museum's photo aircraft.

Grumman F6F Hellcat - 1999

The Hellcat was sitting outside for the seminar; therefore was easy to photograph.
