K-3 with Pentax SMC-A 70-210mm f/4

The morning dew is slowly burning off as I took this photo of a long abandoned Volkswagen Beetle rusting away along Rhine Road in Indiana County Pennsylvania. The VW is thousands of miles and over fifty years removed form its birthplace in Germany. Somehow it seems appropriate that the old Bug rests along Rhine Road.
Hey, that Beetle has potential.

Pull it out, give it a good cleaning, with a Scotchbrite™ pad, clearcoat it (patina is in these days), a headlight and some trim rings, fresh tires, brakes, battery, gas, oil change and a tuneup and away you go.

Ever see the movie Sleeper?

They find a Beetle in a cave in the future, and it fires right up.

just found out about this event:

National Air Tour of Historic WWII Aircraft

CAF AirPower History Tour​

Topeka, Kansas
Topeka Regional
September 11 - 15, 2019. . . . Topeka, Kansas | CAF AirPower History Tour featuring the B-29 Superfortress FIFI
just got back from this event, I was told that

the B 29 was produced late in the war and never saw combat

it is the same model as the " Enola Gay " but the Gay was heavily modified removing most of the guns, armor and blister windows ( other B 29s known as " Silverplate " were also modified in similar
fashion. )

the B 24 never saw combat either..It has a serial number of 18..but suffered damage in a landing, the factories were too busy to repair it so it was patched up and used as a trainer/supply plane during the war stateside. it originally had a belly gun but it just stuck through the fuselage instead of a ball turret

I did not get to see any of the planes in the air, I was too late,

the P 51 is on schedule to arrive tomorrow or friday

Building Materials

Corrugated iron was patented in 1828 and used extensively in the traditional construction of roofs in Scotland, the French however...

Well right up until 1981, built vehicles from it...

This one has been recycled from 1964, to IMHO something far more useful than a panel van.

Aqua Quest out of Tarpon Springs; currently docked in West Ocean City. Treasure Hunters - Current project is the search for a coastal trading ship sunk off the mid-Atlantic coast. It is conservatively estimated to hold $40 – $50 million in specie and gold coins.



Wonder how OSHA would rate this on a safety inspection.

"Gunslinger " P 51D at the Topeka Regional Air Port
arising to the sky
QuoteQuote:
Gunfighter is one of the world’s most famous P-51s, having appeared on the airshow circuit and providing rides for over 35 years. The aircraft is a P-51 "D" model, serial number 44-73264. Of the approximately 15,000 P-51s produced in WWII, over 8,000 were “D” models. Today, only about 150 airworthy examples of Mustangs exist world-wide in museums, flying or under restoration.

Gunfighter was built in the Inglewood, California North American plant and accepted into the USAAF in March, 1945. That month, it was shipped to England, where it was assigned to the famous 'Mighty Eighth' Air Force. In July of 1945, after the War ended in Europe, it was returned to the U.S. and assigned to Olmstead Field in Pennsylvania.. . . Today, Gunfighter is operated by the Commemorative Air Force (CAF). The CAF is the largest operator of Historic Aircraft in the world with 160 aircraft and over 9,000 members. Gunfighter is restored in the colors of the 343rd Fighter Squadron, 55th Fighter Group, 8th Air Force, USAAF. The 55th Fighter Group was the first American Air Corp unit to become operational in Europe, first to fly over Berlin and was one of the units that provided top cover over the Invasion Beaches at Normandy on "D-Day", June 6th, 1944.

Gunfighter is powered by a Packard-built Rolls-Royce Merlin engine. It is rated at 1,490 HP and has a displacement of 1650 cubic inches. Top speed is over 400 mph and ceiling is 41,000 feet. Gunfighter has been modified to include a second seat where the original radio gear and fuselage fuel tank were located. This is a perfect vantage point to enjoy the ride of a lifetime in a P-51!

Without the generous support of our members and the public at large, Gunfighter would not be able to fly. If you would like information about becoming a member or want to make a donation please contact us!

Red, Silver and Goldenrod too.

The RJ Corman Railroad Company takes great pride in its fleet of red, silver and white diesel locomotives. I caught this train led by three immaculate EMD SD40-2 locomotives at Clymer, PA of Friday the 13th.

Norfolk Southern Vs. The Allegheny Mountains

A Norfolk Southern Railroad train slowly grinds its way up the west slope of the Allegheny range at Cassandra, PA.
The train is about to enter the deepest rock cut on the old Pennsylvania Railroad mainline. In a few miles it will crest the grade at Gallitzin and descend around the world famous Horseshoe Curve east to Altoona and beyond.
