Rolling out on a short training mission from Grant County International Airport. B-52s used to be based here back when it was Larson AFB, but have not landed in the area for several years. This BUFF was one of four on detachment from Minot AFB.
Still sitting at Grant County International, this was the last PBY-6A to be built, and is in desperate need of restoration. Former US Navy BuNo 64107. Fires burning in British Columbia provided a very smokey, gray background.
A McChord-based Globemaster executes a clearing turn after taking off to the South from Grant County International. On most days, you can find one or two of them working the pattern...Often taking turns with NAS Whidbey Island-based P-3 Orions.
