Wings Over Wayne 2011

A couple of weeks ago, we drove to Goldsboro and experienced Wings Over Wayne.  Last year we went to the Winston Salem Airshow. By comparison, Wings Over Wayne was bigger, cheaper, and a closer drive - though aspects of the air show were markedly different  (i.e. no Harrier Jet).  The weather was perfect for sitting in the sun and watching the show.

The P-40 is significant to us, because Kelly's grandfather, George Herbert Davis, flew one of these during WWII in the South Pacific theatre. Kelly has transcribed a journal of his grandfather's on another blog called Love Found Down Under, so named, because George met his future wife (Kelly's grandmother), Elisabeth Newton, while stationed in Australia during WWII.
