I apologize if this is in the wrong section. I was reminded of this due to a conversation and thought I’d post it for the history buffs. I live right in the fly over of GRR airport. Close enough that any plane that comes in has gear down, is on final and extremely visible. In a car, I’m a five minute drive not counting traffic lights.
Saturday July 3rd, I was up early as usual and out walking the dog when I heard the unmistakable sound of multiple piston engines. I start looking around and about that time they cleared the tree tops. A couple of World War II’s finest heavies. With their iconic dual tail fins, a pair of B24 Liberators all polished up and likely heading to an air show someplace had just taken off out of Grand Rapids. To have a piece of history like that fly over and you can see them in the air without being 5,000 plus feet away from them is sight to behold. It made my weekend. The things we see when we don’t have a camera…lol.
