I ventured over to Palomar Airport in Carlsbad last week to see a few WWII fighters. It was The Wings of Freedom Tour, there for just the weekend. You could pay $12 to check them out up close and walk through them, $450 to take a ride in one, or $4,000 to actually fly one. So I chose to fly one. Okay, not really. I just crawled through them. And I mean crawled! Tight space in those suckers, sheesh. It was really cool to see. There was a girl in front of me that was much younger than me, but knew so much about all the planes. She kept turning around and telling me random facts about everything, and gave me reading material suggestions. She made me laugh, she was so into it.
I took some pictures for you. Wanna see inside?
Pretty crazy, right? One of the planes was in flight, so I didn’t get to go in that one. But these two were pretty amazing to see.
