You wouldn’t have seen this view today unless you, like Bill Schrier – who shared it – happened to be flying. There were great views from the ground, too, some of them involving aircraft; WSB contributor Christopher Boffoli photographed this restored DC-3 from Seacrest:

Christopher reports, “A little research on the tail number (N3006) indicates that it is called the ‘Esther Mae’ and is a model year 1946 DC-3, completed in California in December 1945 under government contract, though it was too late to be used in the war and was only ever used for civilian flights.” Further research shows it owned by an Oregon/Florida company called DC Flying Circus.
