13th Troop Carrier Squadron Reunion
As a part of the "Thirsty 13th" Reunion (held in Fort Worth, TX), the C-47s "Southern Cross" and "Sky King", along with the B-25 "Pacific Prowler", flew up to the WWII Frederick Army Air Field in Frederick, OK to meet with another of their members who couldn't make the trip to Fort Worth, Karl Peters. The WWII Airborne Demonstration Team hosted a lunch for the 13th veterans at our hangar at the Frederick Regional Airport, where we base our C-47 "Boogie Baby". We had a great time visiting with the veterans over lunch and showing them around. Here are a few pictures:
