Here are two more pictures. The first one is for those of you who have never made it to a show with room-to-room sales. The picture shows the hotel and how the rooms are set up. If the door is open, you are welcome to walk in and make a purchase.

The second picture is of one of the several planes that flew over from the near-by air show. This was a B-17 bomber (same plane that dropped the bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki). The pilots, must've been admiring all of the cool signs... LOL

Steve I believe Fat Man and Little Boy were dropped by a B29. The Enola Gay. Still a cool pic!! And certainly a B17.
Thanks for posting the pics!!

Good pictures, I have some I will also add when I get around to it.
FYI, it was a B-29 that dropped the A-Bombs on Japan. The Enols Gay dropped the first one and the Bockscar dropped the second one.

Yes, I think it's been five years since I''ve been there. If I go I'll bring the beer.

Both were Atomic bombs. Little Boy was Uranium and Fat Man was Plutonium. Neither of them were Hydrogen bombs.

My mistake on the plane. Thank you for correcting me, I should have done a little research instead of relying on my brain (lol). All brave men back in those days, whether in the air, sea or land.

Part of my point was that a lot of cool planes flew by during the show. Anyway, back to gas and oil and signs and stuff...... Hope you enjoyed the pics.
