B-25 and Springs Fling

Events overtook blogging again with Fling at the Springs, and so put off posting about the vintage B-25 yet again. Fling at the Springs (in the park in Enid named Government Springs) is an annual music event that showcases local talent and is filmed then aired on PEGASYS at a later date. Kind of like what they have been doing with the parade in past weeks to the near exclusion of a lot of other things they usually air.
That's the PEGASYS camera on stage there...
It's a gorgeous park...
...but...I'm overdue posting about what I intended to post about  earlier: the Maid in the Shade war bird that was on display at Woodring Airport just outside of Enid.

It kinda had a Studebaker signature.  If this had happened in an automobile garage, a person used to be able to say "A Studebaker was here". :)

The last time a vintage warbird was advertised to be on display, the thing got stuck in Kansas and couldn't make it in at all for the entirety of the scheduled display. Ya sorta get a feel for why that is, right here.  At least this bird was able to make it in from Arizona. GO ZONIES!

Side window gun...
The cockpit and tail guns were blocked off...
...but that doesn't stop a camera with a good zoom on it...
The view of the tail section...
...and a better shot of the two tail guns...
