Wwii Planes Flying Over Dallas Right Now

Sat Oct 01, 2005 9:06 am

Anybody know anything about it? So far I've seen 3 sets of planes flying in formation, as well as a large bomber and 2 more C-47s! Neat looking up from White Rock Lake and seeing all the old planes flying over head!!!

Did the C47 have it's D Day markings. If so, it might be the Black Sparrow, a CAF airplane based at GYY. They took off Thursday morning.

Couldn't see the markings. They might be for the opening of the State Fair of Texas; looked like they were coming from that direction. We had two tail-dragging fighters flying circles overhead for about half an hour although the rest of the planes left earlier.

D Day markings are 3 large white strips around each wing and the rear fuselage. Sounds like the CAF. The C47 and the JU52 are booked for Midland Oct. 1st and 2nd. The JU is still on the ground at GYY.

I don't know, but I saw a B-25 flying over San Angelo this morning.
