Cool......way back when my grandpa took me to see a couple of the Confederate airforces planes when they came to the Troutdale airport.

Living with in 2 miles of the "Bomber" restaurant, I always get a little sad seeing the plane sitting there minus the nose, rotting away...I love to see the restored planes out and about.....I think it was last year that a flight of 3 B-17s buzzed my house. Cool stuff.

I haven't stopped by in a while, is the nose on display yet, or is it still off site?

Hope they do restore it...my brother and I had a good time playing in it when my dad got gas. Art Lacey had a great idea, back when the hi-way was called Super 99' long before the I-205 was built.
