N381EC (cn 29227) Previously registered as N381EC; however, the FAA certificate was cancelled on 17 May 2017. This 1944 Douglas A-26C-55-DT Invader, delivered as 44-35948 USAAF, was formerly registered to Air Spray, Ltd. as C-GHLX, as a wildland firefighting aircraft in Canada. Hopefully, it will be restored by Champaign Aviation Museum at Grimes Field, Urbana, OH.

42-72843 / 24 (cn 2413) Obligatory shot of "Strawberry Bitch". When I was a kid and first went to the museum, my brother told me to stand in front of this very B-24. I had no idea what it said (wasn't paying attention then) only to find out later. Ever since then, I've either had my picture taken in front of it or take a picture of the aircraft myself when I visit the museum.

41-24485 (cn 3170) The real "Memphis Belle" now on display at the National Museum of the United States Air Force. It was really cool getting to see the real deal in person. I'm looking forward to going back when the weather isn't so bad and the crowds are much smaller.

N3703G (cn 44-83546-A) The Movie Belle in the pouring rain. Thankfully, the Airport Café has an overhang, so I was nice and dry while taking this shot.

N3703G (cn 44-83546-A) Prop ring condensation catching the landing light as "The Movie Memphis Belle" pulls off the runway after her only flight for the day. She and "Yankee Lady" were both at Urbana after having the landing at the USAF Museum scrubbed due to bad weather. Sadly, she only got 1 flight and "Yankee Lady" never flew due to rain and IFR conditions setting in for most of the day.
