The focus of the Atlanta Warbirds Weekend was on the Flying Tigers anniversary but there was much more to see. A group of larger aircraft was at the opposite end of the field from where the P-40 fighters were located.
There were two massive cargo planes, The Placid Lassie and the Tinker Belle and a bombing trainer, the Tantalizing Takeoff.
The trainer, a Beech AT-11 was very interesting. You could easily walk up and view the cockpit and the bombardier’s seat. The trainer is set up as a miniature version of the B-17 Flying Fortress. I’m sure it was much less expensive to train in one of these than to take one of those giants out!
