By the end of my stay, some folks thought I owned this TBM-3 Avenger because I was with it so much. Painted exactly as President George Bush’s TBM appeared when we was shot down, this is simply a gorgeous plane I love spending time with. The number of the plane is in honor of our 41st president. You might notice a second shadow as we drag the TBM down the runway. That’s the Shorts Sky Van I’m shooting from.
