What a cool way to start my caching day! I used to hangar an airplane just down the road from here about 20 years ago and driving in brought back some memories. I spotted a couple of warbirds flying in formation as I got out of the cachemobile, but couldn't really make out what they were. I lost sight of them for a minute, but as I was signing the log, the first one appeared and landed on runway 12 right in front of me. It appeared to be a Mitsubishi A6M Zero, yes a WWII Japanese Zero fighter plane! If it was a mock-up or replica, it sure looked like the real deal. Landing right behind it was a North American P-51 Mustang. Too cool! After putting the cache back where it went, I drove around to a parking area off of Fairmont where I could get a better look and snapped a couple of photos (uploaded).

Another cool thing I wouldn't have seen if not for caching. TFTC!!!

infoThis is the original cache type consisting, at a bare minimum, a container and a log book. Normally you'll find a tupperware container, ammo box, or bucket filled with goodies, or smaller container ("micro cache") too small to contain items except for a log book. The coordinates listed on the traditional cache page is the exact location for the cache.
