Another good skydiving ship in its day, before the turbine birds like the Twin Otter really took over.  This Beech 18 is, to my knowledge, still sitting at MFE.  No, I don't know if this particular acft ever carried skydivers or not...

As soon as I get more scanned in, I'll post some personal pictures from the drop zone, including some of the "less polished" pictures of "Niner six uniform."

Ahh, yes I was.  Thanks.  I admit, I had to look up HPY.  I can tell you where big aeroplanes land but GA is a little shaky for me in Texas still.  (If we have to put one in someplace like that we're in a LOT of trouble!  :o)

I saw a B-17 flying over the Baytown Nature Center today.  I got a pic, but it is too small and far away to really see the plane.
