Because of the cancellation of WAC’s Autumn Glare launch, I had this weekend open. It turned out that Paul Allen’s Flying Heritage Collection was hosting one of its free fly days yesterday. I think my quick turnaround on this event makes up for my deplorable lag time in processing my photos from other events.
The flying program yesterday consisted of the collection’s P-47 Thunderbolt, “Tallahassee Lassie”, and their Il-2 Shturmovik. It was the first public flight of their Il-2 since the collection aquired it, and it is the only airworthy Il-2 in the world.
