1999
Fitchburg Airfest
 
 
 
 
The Lockheed "Constellation" wearing its C-121 military garb. 
 
 
 
 
 
Once again the CMSGMA participated
in the Autumn Airfest at the Fitchburg Airport.
It's a refreshing change of pace where we get to
see some antique machinery that we would
not see elsewhere. This picture is what you
would see if you were actually
DRIVING Howard Gorin's 1922
Buffalo Springfield Steamroller!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
  
  
 
    There is always a great antique automobile show"
 
 
      
    
 
 
 
 
 
The World War II Bomber,
"Memphis Belle", a B17, was back again.
These are the tail guns.  
 
 
    
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The unmistakable triple tail rudders
of the "Connie". What surprised me
was that there are fewer Constellations
still flying than there are B17's!  
 
        
   
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Airport puts on a terrific air show!!
 
 
 
    
 
 
 
 
 
 
It's difficult to fly an airplane inverted
in the first place! Imagine trying to stick
this close to the guy below you!!
These are the "Iron Eagles".
 
 
        
   
 
 
 
 
 
I always visit the Greek food booth
and have some "Souvlaki",
"Loukaniko" and "Spanakopitta".
