A Peek into Selma's Air Force History

This jet mounted in front of Memorial Stadium reminds Selmians
 of our years when Craig Air Force Base was the largest flying field in the U.S.
 Craig provided flight training for young Air Force pilots and was open
 from the World War II years until the late 1970s when it
 was closed by the Jimmy Carter Administration. 

Another post on aircraft displayed at the stadium is HERE.

What a marvellous picture - love the surprise of the juxtaposition between plane and autumn leaves.
