Sky Watch - Into the sky

Starting engines

Last Friday I returned to the Frederick airport as the Collins Foundation Wings of Freedom tour departed for its next stop in Westminster, MD (about 30 miles east). Here are some shots as the B-17 took to the skies.

Taxiing

Airborne

Climbing

Wheels up

And into the wild blue yonder

Frederick!!!!!!

Did I tell you my retired teacher lives in Frederick. She is an incredible woman. Wouldn't it be nice if you were neighbors? Heard of a Jackie who went to Borneo for many many years in the 1960s and 70s.
