    Those pics are from the Collings Foundation site, Photobucket was down last night so I couldn't post the other pics I have.

    It was a great time and each ride costs $400 but is a tax deductible donation. The Collings Foundation tours these aircraft around the country every year. Check out thier site at http://www.collingsfoundation.org/ for a tour schedule. It might seem like a lot of money for a 30 minute flight but it is a once in a lifetime oppurtunity and well worth it.
