Nice Shot Ron!! that's an aircraft!!! I lflew personnally on the "Pink Lady" now grounded in La Ferté.(France)
Quite a bird. Dear Old Dad (RIP)was an engine mech on the 1830 at Bradley Field (KBFD) during WWII. He would tell me they would come back from Europe all shot-up he would overhaul engines and send them back. It's amazing some are still airworthy.

I always wished during WWII when I was about 5 or 6 years old that I was old enough to fly one of these, But they didn't let kids that young go to war.OH WELL Now 81 & to late.

Beautiful shot Ron! My favorite old warbird.

My father-in-law was on his very first mission as a copilot on a B17 over Italy when they were hit by flak. Everyone was able to bail out and the plane flew on, eventually crashing into a large volcanic lake (Lake Bolsena). About 4 years ago, Italian researchers discovered and raised the ball turret gun from about 300 feet down, almost totally intact, guns weren't even bent. Further research was able to identify and match the crew with that aircraft and we learned all the stories of what happened to them all after bailout. Fascinating stuff.
