On March 3, 2015, I grabbed my camera and drove to the Camarillo airport in Camarillo, California near my home. They were flying in the only B-29 bomber that still flies around the country. You heard it before you saw it. It sounded like a freight train was approaching. The noise grew louder until finally, it passed overhead. It was a sight to see. Once it landed, I was lucky enough to get in line and take a tour inside. Once I climbed the ladder into the body of the plane, I kept thinking I can’t believe that these men during the war had to fly, eat, and sleep in this thing while it was flying. I had trouble during the brief ten minutes I spent inside. It was beautiful. I quickly fell in love with this aircraft and I’m sure many other visitors did the same that day. I left the airport that day with a sense of awe, and a new perspective on flying B-29’s.
Wow! It has been too long since I’ve been here. I have only myself to blame. I started this blog a long time ago to record my thoughts and ideas and to share them with readers who might be interesting in reading them. Well, first of all, let me apologize to my faithful readers who have read my blog in the past. If your new to my blog, then welcome! What’s that? Where have I been you ask? Well…I like most everyone, I allowed time and distractions to get the best of me. However, I have been B-U-S-Y. Since my last entry, I have flown to Atlanta (August 2014), celebrated Christmas, become actively involved in the CERT program with the local fire department (more about that later), and most of all, I have been studying photography, and taking photos like crazy. With that in mind, I plan to get back in the swing of things, but, I plan to post more photos on my entries. I think that’s what was missing. The stories I can write. The photos were the hard part. I had to go in search of them. If you are like me, you like to see photos along with the stories. Well, with the camera I have, that should not be a problem. It’s a Canon Rebel T5 35mm. So…I am back my friends, and again, I am sorry that I allowed other things to distract me. You see for me writing is challenging, expressing, fulfilling, and most of all fun for me! So until next time, be safe, and see you all very soon.
