Default Moved my -8 to the airport.

My friend hauled my -8 fuselage to its new home today. It was a nice day so a bunch of us provided a motorcycle motorcade for the occasion.

CCW4.

During WWII, it was a British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP) airfield. My Uncle Wendell did his basic pilot training there before moving on to Wellingtons then Lancasters.
