January 2014

I was able to visit this recently established National museum on my Colorado trip.  The collection is small but has plans for expansion and will be worth future visits as they grow.  This P-47 was delivered in 1945, too late to see any combat.  It served stateside before being transferred to the Peruvian Air Force in the 1950′s.  It was acquired and restored by WestPac Restorations and flew again in 1995.  HDR with Nikon D300 and processed with Photomatix.
