As any good photographer is often doing, I constantly look around for more areas and venues to go shooting. As has become normal with Aviation whenever you show up something turns up. Some of the CAF boys from Phoenix stopped by this past week with “Maid in the Shade,” their wings B-25 Bomber and besides hanging out around that beautiful bird, there happened to be a couple flyins going on, one of which I managed to catch.
In Three Forks Montana the Montana Antique Aircraft Association put on a great little flyin with a surprising amount of local planes. Although not the biggest variety of warbirds, there certainly was a fair number of cessna’s and homebuilts. The Piper 135 and A36 Bonanza are perfect examples of what this flyin had to offer, apart of course from some very nice people. One of the most unique planes there was a 1928 Travel Air which had an absolutely beautiful restoration job, including wood working for most of the body and great attention to the canvas wrapping. Although not the most photographically best scenario with lack of clouds and middle of the day little but still a very fun afternoon.
