1999

Fitchburg Airfest

The Lockheed "Constellation" wearing its C-121 military garb. 

Once again the CMSGMA participated

in the Autumn Airfest at the Fitchburg Airport.

It's a refreshing change of pace where we get to

see some antique machinery that we would

not see elsewhere. This picture is what you

would see if you were actually

DRIVING Howard Gorin's 1922

Buffalo Springfield Steamroller!

There is always a great antique automobile show"

The World War II Bomber,

"Memphis Belle", a B17, was back again.

These are the tail guns.  

The unmistakable triple tail rudders

of the "Connie". What surprised me

was that there are fewer Constellations

still flying than there are B17's!

The Airport puts on a terrific air show!!

It's difficult to fly an airplane inverted

in the first place! Imagine trying to stick

this close to the guy below you!!

These are the "Iron Eagles".

I always visit the Greek food booth

and have some "Souvlaki",

"Loukaniko" and "Spanakopitta".
