Default Video I captured of B-17 Yankee Lady and B-25 Yankee Warrior!

Greetings! Fellow military buffs. I was in Detroit on April 9th to attend their collectables show at the Willow Run Airport which also houses The Yankee Air Museum. I was able to take some up-close video of the B-25 Yankee Warrior and B-17 Yankee Lady that was in the hangar. It was kinda cool to be able to be that close to these 2 beauties. Also, had some fun and I took off my jacket and put on some gloves to polish the underbelly of the B17 for about 20 minutes. Hope you like the video of these 2 fine WW2 aircraft. Made my 3 1/2 hour road trip worth the drive. Cheers! T7

By the way, myself and another collector from Ontario were a bit shocked there were no vendors at the Detroit Collectibles show selling any 1/200 diecast birds. One vendor had about 6-8 1/400 models, but that was about it.

I spoke to the organizer, Kevin and he was surprised as well with no vendors showing up with the diecast collectibles.

However, it was his first show under the new format, and I wish them well for their next show.

The + side of things = Yankee Air Museum and the tour of the old bomber plant. An excellent book I scooped up for $3 about the Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum. Along with the great folks I chatted with during my day trip into Michigan Cheers! T7
