B-25 at South County

A strange visitor appeared at South County a few weeks ago...a huge and very weathered B-25 parked out in the weeds by the fuel island. It's been drawing a steady stream of gawkers from the highway.

As you can see it still seems to be wearing it's original paint -- so much peeling that it's hard to believe it can get airborne. Lots of buckets to catch leaking oil too.

Apparently the owner plans to restore it and display it at South County, and seeks volunteers to help. There's a note to this effect on the airplane but it's now illegible due to the brief rains we had.

We've also had a lot of RVs buzzing around, and strange helicopters...
