Bob Nelson and I spent a couple hours after lunch photographing airplanes at the Fargo Air Museum. For most of the time we were along. The DC-3 (Duggy) and Boeing Stearman were out, these gave the other aircraft more breathing space and made photographing the remaining aircraft easier.

New to this visit were a BF-109 Messerschmitt fuselage, and another P-51D Mustang. This Mustang was set up like Major George Preddy's. Major Preddy was our top WWII Mustang ace. This P-51D had a bare aluminum skin that was polished like a mirror. It was parked near the north hanger door across from the KIA dog tag display.

I asked Beth, who was working on the display if I could stand on a folding chair- it improves the angle on some photos. I also got a chance to use my new Sigma 10-20mm Ultra-wide angle lens.
