May 16-20, 2001
both Boeing and McConnell Air Force Base near Wichita and so much
to see in both, Wichita was a great choice for the 26th reunion of
the 73rd Bomb Wing.
Sit back, relax and enjoy my memories of the 26th reunion of the 73rd Bomb Wing. I did not attend all the functions but have many, many photos of the things I did attend and the people I met.
thanks go out to Bill Copeland, Tex Knowles and Lee Florence for the
use of their many photographs. I was going to try and identify who
took what, but that would take forever. [You all know which are yours
and, again, thank you so much for sharing them with us all.]
Here we are inside the experimental hangar at Boeing where "Doc" is being restored. The above banner depicts some of the sponsors who are helping bear the huge financial burden of this project.
Photos of "Doc's" Nose
A few of us were fortunate enough to get a tour inside the Boeing plant.
The light was bad so many of Bill's photos did not come out. Here are
a few of his and mine that did.
