Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress (N93012)


God bless the Nine-O-Nine, her crew, and her pax. It was an honor to have her be the first B-17 I ever "met" decades ago, and the only B-17 I've ever flown. Holding those who were lost in the light. Climbing out of RDU in October of 2017, off to her next stop. Eternal blue skies to all.

Probably one of the best heavy bombers of its time as well as being well armed.
Terrible loss to the entire aviation community, made worse by those who reached out their hands and touched the face of God on the final flight.

God bless those who lost their lives and are now flying with the Angels, and prayers to those whose lives will be forever changed by what they survived..

I was at the 1987 Beaver County airshow when she went off the end of the runway due to pilot error/crosswinds. She became Beaver County, PA's adopted B-17 as she spent 3+ years being lovingly restored there. My late father & I watched and waited on a cold December morning in 1990 for her to take flight back to FL. We just recently toured her again on the Wings of Freedom tour last month in Butler,PA and I bought a tee shirt of the "909". RIP old bird & crew and thanks for all the memories.
On Golden Wings they fly in perpetuity....Fly High and Fly Free!

She was a beautiful aircraft. I was fortunate to have flown with her years ago and will always be one of my most cherished experiences. So sad. Deepest sympathy to the family of those who perished and healing thoughts to those who were injured.
