Remarks: Flashback to the 1940's. One of the neat things about a smaller airshow like this is watching these fantastic looking crafts pull in off the runway and parking right by you. Makes for some great photo opportunities.
Remarks: Grimes Flying Lab lighting test aircraft for the Grimes Company of Urbana, Ohio. The aircraft was built as a transport for the U.S. Air Force in 1953, sold as surplus in 1960, and eventually acquired by Warren Grimes in 1963 for conversion to a lighting testbed..
