    Curious that they covered over the "Blue Angels" markings.?
    Good eye.

    Wonder if some Blue Angel trademark issue came into play?

    By-the-way thanks for sharing all these shots.

    Sure to be a lot of info tomorrow, but the B-25 Old Glory had a very rough off field gear up landing in Stockton, CA from Chino this evening. Poor plane is beat, I believe they said 3 crew members on board with 1 walking away and 2 going to the hospital with what sounded like non-life threatening injuries. Good news for a sad turn of events

    This is the same B-25 that crashed at Reno in 1982.
    ed; Wondering if they ran out of fuel...again.

    I remember that, they got lucky landing her in Hungry Valley, brought out via Chickadee and Lemmon Drive. Pretty sad they skimped on the fuel load from Stockton to Reno.

    Tuff old gal. Hope they recover fast and live to fly again.

    Here she is in 2006.

    I sure hope not! Interesting remarks from the incident in 1982: https://www.asias.faa.gov/apex/f?p=1...9820913054159I

    DOUBLE ENGINE FAILURE DUE TO A CROSSFEED RESTRICTION AND DEFECTIVE ELECTRIC FUEL BOOST PUMP.
