TEXACO ad featuring Waco Cabin

Image
We recently sorted some aviation advertisements and found this TEXACO ad. The ad highlights their products used by airlines of the day. Oil companies themselves were big customers for cabin airplanes in the 1930s too. TEXACO had a large fleet of aircraft to move their executives and workers around the country.

Champaign Lady B-17 Restoration

This past weekend I visited the Champaign Aviation Museum in Urbana, Ohio. My buddy Jim and family hosted our mutual friend Connor and I for the weekend of touring aviation sites. We spent one full day in Dayton at the Museum of the United States Air Force and then a good portion on the next day in Urbana.

The highlight of the visit to the Champaign Aviation Museum was seeing the progress on the B-17 (44-85813) named Champaign Lady. Below are the photos showing the progress.
