Today at KBDR

The Collings Foundation WWII bombers mentioned in the previous post seem to have made it to KBDR despite the wet weather of the week. This morning they were parked on the ramp.

Witchcraft (below) is a Consolidated B-24J Liberator, one of very few left in airworthy condition.

Nine-O-Nine (below) is a Boeing B17-G Flying Fortress, a type that became more rare earlier this year when Liberty Belle burned after a forced landing (story here).

Along with Betty Jane, the P-51C Mustang, they are heading up the road to Waterbury-Oxford Airport (KOXC) for the weekend.
