Seasons & Tuesday Treasure - July 13, 2016


 Welcome!  - Today I'm joining Jesh (St. Germain's) and Tom (The Backroads Traveller) for:





SEASONS and TUESDAY'S TREASURES - Click on the links to be taken to either Meme for the other participants entries.

Last year I attended an event here in Walla Walla known as the "Wings of Freedom Tour" - But only posted one photo taken from that event.  As luck would have it the same event was held here again this year.  So today I'm sharing a mix of photos from both last year & this year.

 
 
This is a promotional van for the tour.  I thought it was worth showing as well as the planes.

 These WWII planes were here in Walla Walla and you could take "walk-thru" tours of them.  We didn't want to pay the price to actually go inside the planes but were offered a ride in a golf cart to get up closer to them for free so we decided to do that instead.

There were some other planes owned by local people on display as well.  This is one of the By-Planes that was on display. 
 

If you click on the links next to each of the planes you'll be taken to the Collins Foundation for information about each of these restored planes.
 
I hope you have enjoyed seeing them.

  3. Absolutely beautiful planes, Ida! I love planes, maybe because I have gone on several and experienced the power of that thing, as well as the exhilaration of being up in the air! Many thanks for sharing these with SEASONS!
    Don't forget, I'm next week on my new blog, of course, you can also click on this week's one, which will take you there as well! Happy rest of the week to you!

  4. Wow these are so cool up close! I love bi planes when they are up in the air but even cooler when you can get so close. I'd have taken that golf cart ride too. Fun!

  8. My husband would love this!! I love the art on the planes. Did you ever see that movie Memphis Belle? It's all about the pilots who flew these types of planes.
