DC-3 75th Anniversay Tour from Hiller Aviation Museum 
Day 5 – Oshkosh | What can you say about Oshkosh that has not already been said? Anything and everything related to aviation is here. We are only here one full day so there was so much to do and see that we didn't spend allot of time with the plane.
With all the rains and the fact that Oshkosh is so big the DC-3's/C-47's are spread out all over the place. We're not sure how many planes made it. It must be out on the internet somewhere but all we know is there are a whole bunch here. ...

We will still be at AirVenture until Thursday night, so if you're here, please be sure to say hello. You can find my schedule here.

Battle of Britain prelude: the Luftwaffe "Ural... from x planes

Battle of Britain prelude: the Luftwaffe "Ural... from x planes
The Junkers Ju 89 was the second design for the Luftwaffe's proposed long-range strategic "Ural bomber"
On 3rd June 1936, General Walter Wever - the creator and champion of the Ural bomber project - was killed when his Heinkel He 70 crashed on take-off.
On 11th April 1937, the Ju 89 made its first flight.
On 29th April 1937, all development on the Ju 89 and the Dornier 19 was cancelled by the German air ministry.
Wever's vision of a "balanced" Luftwaffe - both tactical and strategic - had suffered a huge blow. The focus would be on the development and production of medium bombers (incuding the Ju 88, the prototype of which is the smaller aircraft in the top image above)...

World War II: B-25 Mitchell Hits the Empire State Building from Military History
July 28, 1945 - A B-25 Mitchell bomber (right) accidently collides with the Empire State Building. Flown by Lt. Col.

While the resulting fire was contained, fourteen, including Smith, were killed in the accident.
