Fly In at the Aviodrome with two Lockheed Electra Juniors. NC18130 has recently moved to Germany, and this was its first trip with the new owners. The shiny fuselage shows reflections of the engine, the grass and the photographer. A shame the weather was very grey. The airplane has an interesting history as F-BUIE. Now fitted with a three blade prop.
