Title: B-17 Flying Fortress
Post by: Britt on October 21, 2014, 12:41:49 AM
Haven't seen a thread on here for just plain B-17 shots overall... so I thought I'd start one with these which are from earlier in the year but I haven't posted them on here yet...

B-17G Flying Fortress 'Fuddy Duddy' located at Lyon Air Museum. This was during it's test flights before the Planes of Fame Airshow. Doing air to air with a B-17 has been a bucket list item for a while, and hopefully won't be the last time I get to shoot with her in air! ;-)
