Air Show, 1993

At the Dutchess County Air Port.
We have tried several times to get to this in later years but it is just simply too crowded these days.

Air Show, 1996

We could not get into the parking lot, so we ended up in the Caldor (now Kohls) lot on Route 9 in Wappingers Falls.

I will never forget seeing the modern fighter jet doing tricks and then flying off into the distance...

B-17 Bomber Sentimental Journey and "Nazi" plane, 2000

Just a fair warning...There are a few swastikas in the album. I don't support or condone what the Nazi's did, but I also don't support changing history, even the lousy stuff.

Back in 2000, these two WWII planes were at the Floyd Bennett Memorial Airport in Glens Falls, NY. I was able to go and see them.

I have been told by my friends who know about this kind of stuff that the "Nazi" plane is actually a Casa-111, built by the Spanish under license after WWII, but of the same design as the German Heinkel-111 that was used during the War. Since that is a more historically important plane, it was restored to those markings....and it's the only one left flying in the world. (sure wish I had taken more photos, of both of them!)

The B-17, named Sentimental Journey, is considered to be the best B-17 left flying and is quite famous in it's own right, appearing in films and documentarys.

I am afraid of heights so I did not go on one of the tours offered on Sentimental Journey, but I did watch it take off, and that is captured in the photos, as well as it flying off in the distance. One of the photos it's so far away it is very hard to spot...but it is there.

2012 Dutchess County Airport Open House
Jun 2, 2012

An excellent time...the second time I've ever been in an airplane, although I still can't go for a ride in one. The Coast Guard allowed spectators into their Dassault Falcon.

USS Slater on the move
Apr 6, 2014

On April 6th, 2014, the USS Slater- a World War II veteran destroyer, currently a floating museum in Albany NY, was towed south down the Hudson River, headed to Staten Island, NY to get some hull repairs. My brother took me to Long Dock Park in Beacon, NY, to see it and take photos. Unfortunatly, we got there two hours before we needed to, which was a little boring. But I got to see and photograph and bunch of trains, which are also in the album.

Wings of Freedom Tour
Sep 30, 2014

Presented by the Collings Foundation at the Dutchess County Airport on September 30th, 2014. Incredible day! While I was there the P-51 Mustang took flight, and I was able to capture it on film! I've seen a P51 in flight before (when an airshow was held at the same airport in 1996, but I wasn't able to get close before)

Trains, Planes and other vehicles
Nov 20, 2008

While I am known as a car guy, I do have an interest in other mechanical vehicles besides cars. I don't get the chance to photograph them too often, though.

Nina and Pinta replicas at Newburgh Waterfront
Jul 9, 2017

My pictures are not that good, but only the second and third time I've been on a ship of any sort. (The first being the Mayflower replica in Massachusetts)
