Default b-17

I got to ride in a B-17 as well. It was a set up where you bought a place on a flight so that the group could raise money for more restorations.

Oh what a feeling that flight was. Best experience I've ever had in a plane. I even got to look through the bomb sight at one point. What a neet thing to do. Better yet, we were flying over the city I lived in and was able to spot my pesky neighbor's house! Oh but for a load of 500lb GP bombs.....

Clear skies all..
