An Old Friend Comes to Visit

Your blogmeister missed the Geneseo Airshow a couple weeks back, but yesterday he claimed a consolation prize by saying hello to an old friend...

'The Movie Memphis Belle' was back in Buffalo, NY this past week. As some of the half-dozen or so whom we call our readership may recall, the 'Belle's last visit to KBUF was reported here on this very cyber-rag, but on that occasion your blogmeister was not able to stick around for very long and we had only a few photos to share. Well, this time 'round he loitered on the ramp at Prior Aviation for a bit longer and even meandered on over to a prime spotter's roost with a friend, and was able to grab a few decent shots... many more than last year.

Without further adieu, here they be... enjoy!











We mentioned a friend earlier... here's a shot taken by this fella, with whom your blogmeister spent a while jawin' and shootin' pix of things with wings. You can see more of his stuff HERE...

The final photo above would probably have been the last one for this installment of BuffaloWingz had it not been for a lucky bit of timing. As the B-17 was rolling out for its last hop of the day, your blogmeister departed KBUF to head home, stopping for a minute or three to take some snaps of an interesting non-aviation subject. Upon his arrival at home-sweet-home, actually about 5-10 seconds after walking in the door, your blogmeister heard the unmistakable sound of four round engines, walked back outside, and, camera still in hand, swung the lens skyward to capture a few final snaps of his old friend... a fitting end to the day...
