Week 27 – #1. A Hot Ride

5 Comments

What a thrill it was for me to visit a piece of history recently.  The B-17 Flying Fortress, the B-24 Liberator and the P-51 Mustang Fighter, all World War II iconic airplanes, were on display for public viewing at the Sarasota Airport.  Not only did I see and photograph them, I hopped on board to see the cockpit, the machine gun turrets, and bomb bay.  There were several older gentlemen there, all World War II veterans, who remembered these planes and told some amazing stories.  For the thrill of a lifetime, some World War II buffs actually climbed aboard for a hot ride in these historic machines.

A true Southerner, I was born in Georgia but lived most of my adult life in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In 2001, my husband and I retired and moved to beautiful Sarasota, FL. We quickly realized that we were not retirement material and could not play golf two or three times a week so we got our real estate licenses and affiliated with Coldwell Banker on Longboat Key. My love for photography is very beneficial to me when photographing interiors and exteriors of the homes we list. Other than photography, I have a keen interest in genealogy and golf (whenever I can find the spare time from our real estate practice).
