Flying with the CAF high above Texas

While being at the FINA CAF Airsho (2004 report) I was fortunate to get the possibility for several flights in historic aircraft, including one in a Curits C-46 Command to go on a photo mission. While up in the air, a Mitsubishi Zero, 2 P-51 Mustangs, 3 B-25 Mitchel and a Gruman US-2B Tracker joined on our wings and provided excellent photo opportunities.

Caf Midland

Where? Midland, Texas - USA
When? 02-03/10/2004

Going up in the early morning gave some excellent photos, and the flight in the Gruman Tracker was also an unforgettable experience during these few days in Texas.
