B-25s at Urbana

Today I drove over to Urbana to check out the gathering of B-25s. There were about 15 when I was there and I believe some others had been there previously. Tomorrow they're flying over to Wright Patterson Airforce Base for a reunion of the Doolittle Raiders. Enjoy the photos...

There were also two P-51 mustangs in attendance.

This is the closest I was able to get to capturing a full prop circle. Although some clouds rolled in, it was just too bright to allow a slow enough shutter speed (say 1/60 sec) to allow the full prop circle to form.

This last phot was pretty heavily retouched in the Gimp. Initially it looked much like the third photo down, but I thought it would be nice to change the sky from grey to blue.
