Wings Over Dixie 1999

I took my nephews, Brian and Eric, to see the 1999 Wings Over Dixie Airshow & Festival, sponsored by The Dixie Wing of The Confederate Airforce, a group which raises money to sponsor the restoration and maintenance of aircraft from World War II and other eras. It was a great show, and it gave me the opportunity to finally see my favorite old planes with my own two eyes, take a whole bunch of pictures with my new camera and get the sunburn of my life. Here is some of what I saw:
