7/28/09 Here are some photos that I got from my mom while I was visiting her in Provo last week.

These first two pictures were taken at Delta Utah.  My dad flew the plane down main street at an altitude of 50 feet to let everyone know that he was landing.  It was really really noisy.  All of the townsfolk turned out to tour the B-29.
