Visit to Cleveland Brings City's Aviation Heritage to Life

By Leo Cachat
During a recent trip to Cleveland, I made an effort to visit a few places I hadn't yet photographed. I went to the 100th Bomb Group restaurant, located across from Cleveland Hopkins Airport to photograph the P-47 and P-51 they have displayed in front of the restaurant.  I then went down the road to shoot a few of the airliners before heading downtown to visit an area right outside of Burke Lakefront Airport called Marjorie Rosenbaum Plaza.  The plaza features a memorial wall to the Cleveland National Airshow and two Phantoms on pedestals - one in Thunderbird colors and one in Blue Angel colors - along with memorial stones around a planter featuring some past performers and aircraft. It was really a beautiful display, and it is really moving. Here are the pics. Hope you all had a Merry Christmas.
