New photos part thirtyfive

Good morning everyone! I'd been alerted to my last post, regarding N2045, #544, by Dave DeBace about that photo being quite rare. That being that the aircraft only flew for a short time as a 580 before being lost at ORD on December 27th, 1968. Thanks for the heads up Dave!!
Today's postings are of N2046 and N4634S. Please note, the pixelation on N4634S isn't something that can be corrected. Sorry...alas, DO enjoy! :)

Recent finds

Hello everyone! Today I'm adding a couple of treasures found recently on EBay. One is a nice plaque, with a laminated Wisconsin Central L-10A photo attached to it. Well done piece, and a new photo of the L-10A I'd not seen!
Second is a mystery photo, of sorts. :) It shows a North Central Convair 340/440 along with a large crowd along with a series of Cadillacs in line with obviously someone important! On the back of the photo is 'Official MDMG Army Air Section Photograph,' along with the date of SEP 8 1965. Do any of our blog viewers have an idea of what event this could've been, location, etc??? I appreciate your input! Thank you...:)

Remember, simply click on the photos for larger viewing...
