Thread: Bowmanfest 2022

    Default Bowmanfest 2022

    I was finally able to make it with a buddy to the small air show near me this weekend and had a blast. Some cool aircraft to see (very much enjoyed the 1947 Widgeon, P51D, Catalina, Avenger, as well as many others). We tried to get a ride on the Huey but they were too booked up. Also tried but failed to get one on the PBY Catalina which would have done a water landing on the Ohio river and returned to the airfield (it left early Sunday to return to northern Illinois). A fun time though!
    Enjoy:

    It must have been quite a thrill to get up close and personal with all those planes - the full sized ones, and the models.

    Glad to see the Jenny in your pictures, I think it was damaged in a crash a couple years back.

    Thanks all. The weather was perfect, a great way to spend the afternoon. There was a small airshow twice a day with some formation flying and acrobatics, smoke, etc. from a few planes. Lots of fun

    Great pics, Chris. Looks like you had a perfect day for this.
    Question: what planes were "Tantalizing Takeoff" and the one that looks like a Russian can of RedBull?

    Tantalizing Takeoff is an AT-11 Kansan, an Army bombardier trainer. Very nice to be able to poke your head in and have a look around.
    The "Russian Red Bull" eludes me -- I don't think it even had a sign on it.
