My fondness of airplanes is no secret. Like a woman window-shops for shoes she can’t afford, I shop over airplanes I’ll likely never fly in, let alone ever own. But it’s nice to dream and enjoy these beauties through short visits and lasting photos. 

This beautifully restored North American T-6 Texan (with the Navy designation SNJ-5) was at the recent Wings and Wheels at the  1940 Air Terminal Museum with it’s 600 horse power Pratt and Whitney R-1340 “Wasp” Radial engine. 

Some lucky person won a charity raffle for a ride in this historic World War II era aircraft. I knew I should have bought more tickets.
