I was able to go up in a World War II-era B-17 plane today, which was amazing. This was something I covered for our sister station across the hall, 970 WMAY. The plane, Sentimental Journey, is at Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport pretty much all week. You can reserve flights by calling Landmark Aviation at Springfield's Airport.
It's not my first rodeo, or flight in a WWII plane. I've been up in other similar planes (you can watch video I put together of another flight here).
As for today's flight? It was great! Beautiful day. Springfield is gorgeous from up above. It's an amazing way to see all the Lincoln sights! You can watch my flight in The Sentimental Journey from today below:
Meanwhile, I've been pretty busy in the garden. Last year was a total bust, except for the amazing flowers that came with the house. This year, we have a much better grasp on what to expect and how to handle it. We also got a good grasp on the vegetable garden and have already enjoyed some fresh garden salad featuring cilantro, spinach and salad.
