I love air shows. Especially when I get to go up into the wild blue yonder in a flying piece of American military history.
While the theme of this year's Open House and Air Show at Sheppard Air Force Base is a "Salute To Warriors" I would like to add to that a salute to the Commemorative Air Force members and supporters who restore, maintain and fly several aircraft from American military history. Over the years I've been fascinated by the static displays they've had at various air shows and watched the fly overs. This year I got to strap in and go for a ride in the Yellow Rose, a B-25 bomber from World War II.
