Any Marines out there should know this one, the "Dog". I have a couple hours stick time. Only a couple still airworthy that I know of, although a few of the S-58 Twin-Pac turbine conversions are still in use.http://forums.justoldtrucks.com/Uploads/Images/02b956bc-3771-4e9c-8f9f-7674.jpg

Michelle, A very good idea here. I love old WW 2 aircraft. We have an Air National Guard training base west of Alpena 7 miles so we are used to hearing all kinds of aircraft noise at our house. I call it the sound of Freedom. My favorite fighter aircraft, the Mustang P51 D

Come on Earl, Lets send them chickens on down the other side.

Jim, I remember well the B-25's at Rockdale. In the mid to late 70s when the old road went past the airport I had come through Rockdale several times and either one or two of the B-25's were very visible sitting on the ramp in a sad state of disrepair and neglect. I had so wanted to stop and look them over but as usual I did not have the time to do so.

Not sure which pidgeon hole this fits into, probably both aviation and trucking.

De-mobbed F-111 on its way through town this week enroute to a muesum in Adelaide S.A.

Hi Michelle,

Here's some local warbird stuff from right here in Rockdale, TX.

Back in about 1983, there was a big auction at the then Coffield Airport just south of Rockdale here. There were a few WWII planes, as well and some radial and helicopter engines, crates of new sparkplugs, etc.

Also on the block I recall a C-47, three B25's, and several of the plywood gliders shown on this thread (which were pretty well on their way to being dirt at the time). These planes were the last of many that were flown in, and these stayed for a while. The story goes that in the early 60's, all kinds of WWII aircraft were flown in to Rockdale, patched up, and then flown out headed for "parts unknown," supposedly (way) south of here. One of the B-25's was repaired at the field and eventually was flown out under its own power, which would have required a brave flight crew, these planes were pretty bad looking!
Some of the planes are documented:

http://www.warbirdregistry.org/b25registry/b25-458887.html
http://www.aerovintage.com/b25news2.htm <<look in Oct 2004 http://warbird-central.com/2012/03/45-8898-b-25j-3537-nc-mitchell-axis-nightmare/

About every other month this dude flies into Rockdale and puts on an airshow flying over parts of town, fun to watch.

Michelle, I keep looking at your tag line and thinking, No, they do not go good in a fruit salad but they do wonders for an Amish macaroni salad."


When summer gets here I'm going to try some little cherry tomatoes in the 4th of July picnic fruit salad. If anyone complains too much I'll just tell them that it is a Texas thing. LOL

John, I think we hijacked another one!
