"One of the world's rarest collections of flight-ready World War II warbirds" is located at Paine Field in Everette, Wa. Paul Allens famous The Heritage Flight Collection. Every other weekend in the summer he has free fly days with the Historic Flight Foundation now getting involved. Better conditions and my second venture in to this type of shooting led to much better images, still working on getting that shutter speed down to 1/250 of a sec, pretty hard panning airplanes with that slow a shutter speed, hopefully next time I'll nail one. Check out their calendars and get up to Paine field if you can, they let you right out next to the taxi way.
