Notes:

Although Floyd Bennet Field is closed, this rare C-97 was going to fly out on RWY 24 after being restored over the last few years. Here is the C-97 taxing and doing some pre-checks. Unfortunately it was a no-go due to some issues with engine #3 (carburetor issues). An attempt was made the next day, and a no-go again. This time it was due to some sort of engine fire. It may be a few months before they'll attempt to fly her out again.
