B-17




 The "Survivor" 59 missions and returned home. The only one of the 390th.

Respect.

Where did you see this one? I LOVE B-17's and even go to fly on the Liberty Belle a few years ago. I was pretty sad the day she burned. I also got to tour Sentimental Journey many years ago. Any chance I get to see a B-17 I am there.

It's in hanger #5 at the Pima Air Museum in Tucson, AZ. It's (I believe) a B-17 that never saw combat and is in pretty much "stock" condition. There was A LOT of great B-17 related/stuff in hanger #5... I'll post more later (but it's off the "Sportster" track somewhat.)
I WISH I could have ridden the Belle before she burned, I saw the pic in the paper and knew it was over....
