Almost a month ago I wrote about a trip that I took to the USS Hornet that is permanently birthed at the former Alameda Naval Air Station. One of the great things about visiting that ship is that there is quite a bit of space where you can freely wander and get up close and personal with exhibits on board.
I had been to a small airshow at our local airport and seen mostly military helicopters up close, but while this particular plane had a rope around it, most did not and you could get right next to them.
The yellow color on this T-28B Trojan trainer really grabbed my attention as it stood out against the rather neutral colors of everything else around me in there.
