GBJim Posted September 15, 2018 Share Posted September 15, 2018 (edited) I took the B-50 Super Fortress for a short flight up the Hudson this morning. The B-50 was a post war modified B-29 with more powerful engines, and a larger fin and rudder. I split a short video into both a Takeoff, and separate Landing, to eliminate mid-flight boredom. :) The takeoff was from JFK Intl, and the landing was at Stewart Intl. The first photo shows me turning North and flying up river. The second photo shows me approaching the Newburg Notch, with the West Point Military Academy on the high left bank. That notch in the river is one of the narrowest parts in the lower Hudson river, and when General George Washington commanded the fort at West Point, he had his troops string a heavy chain across the river, to prevent British ships from traveling North, and getting behind him . The next 2 photos just show me performing a fair enough landing, and taxiing into Stewart.
