@Gary Schenauer Thank you very much for the kind and encouraging words! It really means a lot. Other websites often reject great photos, but comments, like yours, make our photos worth sharing here.

This is the Navy version of the B-25, a PBJ-1 acquired by the Navy but used by the Marines in the south Pacific. She is painted to represent an aircraft from VMB-611.

So they chose to go retro with a forgetable bland Continental scheme and not a retro classic United scheme? No wonder this airline is in trouble.

Lake Village, Arkansas, has a unique place in aviation history. The famous aviator Charles Lindbergh is recorded as making his first night flight over nearby Lake Chicot and the town of Lake Village in 1923, while Lindbergh made a stopover there. I recall a monument placed in Lake Village to commemorate this aviation moment.

That's painful to look at! Trying to work it out, but I suspect that might be a fairly early C90 airframe with many upgrades, including the swept back four bladed props and the aft fuselage strakes...judging by the flap setting, it seems most likely that the nose gear has collapsed during the landing/rollout phase.

Read a book years ago by John Ball called "Phase Three Alert" about the recovery of a bomber from the ice.

Sounds similar.

Very, very nice photo! I am not ex-AF or Navy AF, so I do not think that I can help you when it comes to AF terms.

Where was it, please?

checked out your collection of photos , noticed a few from Red Lake , did not see a full side shot of a Norseman . In my early teen years I had a summer job at Noorduyn Norseman in St Laurent . My uncle who owned the company would buy Norsemans that had been written off , 2 cousins and myself would strip them down to the frame and the experts would salvage what they could . The main reason was to salvage the frame which would undergo a magnaflux test . Thinking back , how I miss those days .

Any present or former Navy pilots / fliers out there, I'm AF Ret. and my knowledge of Navy terminology is a bit sketchy, so I'm wondering if you can clarify something for me? My understanding of the term "section" as it applies to Navy aviation is that a "section" is a pair of aircraft (meaning two aircraft) that are performing a mission together as a tactical unit. So I have questions about the scene shown here in my photo. First, since there are more than just two aircraft flying together here, is this group still referred to as a "section" or is there another term that would be used to describe a four-ship group such as seen here? Also, I've seen three-ship groups ... would a three-ship group still be correctly referred to as a "section?" I've researched but can't find any answer, so if there are any Navy folks out there who can ease my curious old mind (lol), I'd appreciate your help. Thanx.

Mark,

Mark & John,

Have a nice weekend.

I guess that farmer on the end of runway 21 is having a well viewed barn per Flightaware. Hope i don't get sued.

Nice shot, Darryl! I've seen two SPA birds parked at KTUS before, but not near the terminal.

Very nice feeling to fly this machine which brings memories of the past.

Nice shot, Gary! And having letters (usually colored rocks) on a mountain (or hill) side is pretty common throughout the western US. (I don't know if the practice extends into the mid-west or eastern US.) Like Gary said, they usually represent the name of the town or a local school. For example, there is a large red, white and blue "A" on a hill side in Tucson, Arizona representing the University of Arizona which is located there. The hill is referred to locally as "A Mountain."
