Vintage Airplanes, the 1941 Boeing A75N1(PT17)

We see a lot of small planes flying in this area which is very cool.

And one day when we drove past the Airport, we saw this Biplane getting ready to taxi down the runway!

I’m thankful for anything vintage that’s stood the test of time.

Aren’t you?

I’m joining Thankful Thursdays.

My sweet hubby researched and found the information on this exact airplane. It’s a 1941 Boeing A75N1(PT17). Thanks honey!

What a beautiful airplane, Diane. I'm sure you both enjoyed seeing it. My Daddy loved planes and flying so much. We spent most of our Sunday afternoons visiting small local airports. This reminds me of him. Thank you. ♥

These are cool pictures, Diane. It's hard to get a good photo when something is in motion, but these turned out nice. Love that close up! Those clouds are so pretty too. : )

Ann Thompson said...

Yes, I love vintage things. What I don't like is the fact that vintage things were new things back when I was growing up...lol
The planes always remind me of mg dad. He lived to fly and got his pilots license after he retired and bought himself a small plane.

Oh, I would love to go flying in an old Bi-plane. My mother flew in one when she was young at one of those one fashioned barn stormer meets.

Tom said...

Great pics of the vintage 1941 Boeing plane. The sky shots are so pretty, too. Happy Thursday!

NanaDiana said...

I love it, Diane. Those are really great pictures and I love the old bi-planes. Would you believe that my son and grandson are at the EAA thing in Oshkosh, WI right now? It it is the biggest fly-in air show in the country, I think. You can google it -but Ryan has been on many of the old planes. He was a vendor there two years ago and so got to see a lot of the stuff up close. It is quite amazing. xo Diana

Vee said...

That would be cool to look up and see that plane flying past...

Stacey said...

My husband would just love this!

BeachGypsy said...
