Staggerwing!


Staggerwing!
Beechcraft Model 17. Buchanan Field. Concord, CA. January 6, 2012.




Through the 1930's and long after, the Model 17 was the ultimate Business aircraft.




Mount Diablo overlooking Concord's Buchanan Field.

I love living near an airport.

Re: Staggerwing!

So, you got to see the U-2 take-off and climb almost straight up?
