Spitfire, S-2 Tracker, Two Stearmans, Eight(at least!) AT-6, Lockheed Loadstar,
Beech-18, Three DC-3's, O-2 Skymaster, T-28,and the C-54 Berlin Airlft bird.
There is also a Corsair in VF-17 markings parked at the Memorial site and a
V-22 Osprey flew in and landed there yesterday. So far, the flyovers have had a
few surprises also such as a U-2 and a NASA Canberra today. This has been a
good place for an aircraft nut so far! I just hope I haven't left any aircraft
out. Been hard to keep up. All aircraft listed have also been involved in
the various flyovers too.
