January 12, 2008 Air-to-air
PT-17/PT-22 trainer formation
highlight of my day on Saturday was an opportunity to do an air-to-air
photo shoot with 2 classic military trainers. The PT-17 Stearman is
privately owned and was flown by Carter Teeters while the PT-22 is
owned and operated by the Commemorative Air Force Inland
Empire Wing. The photo plane for this shoot was the Antonov AN-2
Colt operated by the 3rd Pursuit Squadron of the CAF. It is pretty
unusual to see these two primary trainers together in formation.
