Rob Collings and several of the Collings foundation planes were in town for the weekend, including a B-24, B-17, and their P-51 Betty Jane. We were able to get a “formation flight” in with Chuck Gardner (Betty Jane’s pilot), who is also very quick with his camera! It was a real honor to hang out with this group of warbirds and the support team that keeps them all flying around the country!
