I mentioned this in the save the Skymaster thread but I feel this deserves a thread of it's own... :love: :drool:

Clearly needs to visit Europe next year to mark the 60th anniversary of the beginning of the Berlin Air Lift.

Clearly needs to visit the UK, any reason will do! What a beauty, even more so with a B-29 by each wingtip! Why does my Tea taste funny?

No-one could ever accuse the C97 of being beautiful, but by God, that's one gob-smackingly photogenic aircraft...! :love:
And as the smart ship grew,
In stature, grace and hue,
In shadowy silent distance grew the iceberg too....

That's awesome. You certainly can't miss it and agree It's be great to see it visit this side of the pond. The US heritage scene really is in good health these days.

Magnificent effort to get a lesser appreciated beast like this in the air. Yet another gem on the US preservation scene. What a looker! Well, you know what I mean...

Love it. Being too young :whistle: to have seen the KC-97s flying at Greenham, this would be great to see in the air. Corgi made a diecast model of this one a fair few years ago. :up:
