This is the last picture taken of this barn before it became another pile of rubble laying on the ground. Looks like they tried to save some of the old boards before the roof caved in.
Skyline, Altoona, PA.
Turing around from the last shot, we're looking west at an east bound train passing the old Alto tower in Altoona. If you've been here before or seen the Alto tower on other websites, you'll notice that the building is now painted an ugly primer grey. Sure would have have helped the asthetics of the building if Norfolk Southern would have sprung for a 2nd contrast color.
I took a motorcycle tour through the back roads of Indiana County a little while back and took the next group of photographs. Should you be in the neighborhood on June 13th and 14th, stop in at the Jimmy Stewart Airport for the annual airport festival.
A mid-century 1956 Piper Tri-Pacer Model PA-22-150 sitting in front of the Jimmy Stewart Airport.
The Tri-Pacer is a 4 seater and has after market wing tips that the pilot told me gives him a little extra speed and a shorter takeoff.
The second of 2 older planes I saw at the airport on this trip was this 1974 Piper Super Cub. Originally sold in Canada, the plane has been restored from top to bottom and now carries a U.S. registration.
The Super Cab Model PA-18-150 is a 2 seater with a stick control.
