Old Air Guard Plane

This old plane decorates the entrance to the Front Royal-Warren County Airport. Sometimes we drive past it on our way to Shenandoah River State Park. This airport is not very large although it is bigger than the little one in Basye.

In the distance you can see the Blue Ridge Mountains. Look closely and you can see Skyline Drive! In fact, you can also see the airport from the Shenandoah Valley Overlook on the Drive.

Cool photo of the plane and I love the background with the mountains. I will have to check out the Shenandoah River State Park some day. Wishing you a happy week!

There is a place in Erie that has a couple of old planes sitting out for all to see. I don't think they have one like this though.

What a great shot, you can almost imagine the plane in flight!

My hubby was an Air Force pilot, and knows more about all types of aircraft than most people have forgotten (collectively!) He would enjoy going here, since he's also from Va. and misses it a lot. Great photo!
