I stopped and watched the PBY airplane at the Arlington Airport as the crew started up the engines. Noisy, smoky at first, but cool to see!

These are grand old airplanes that still serve very well today. It was such a good design as a amphibian. Nice shot... I especially like that you got the engines running.

I do love those amphibian planes!! On my birthday several years ago, my son -- knowing my fascination with them, took me on a wonderful flight over Seattle and the Sound! I'll never forget that one! Have a great Memorial Day weekend!!

What a great photo, Sally! I grew up on a few air bases, so this is a familiar sight! :)

What an unusual looking plane.
