  1. I've been hauling these pictures taken during my visit and flight on Aluminum Overcast for far too long - time to share! The EAA 2014 B-17 Tour made a stop near Atlanta, and there was zero chance that I was going to miss an opportunity to get up close and personal with the ship and her crew. Aluminum Overcast is a late-production G, serial number 44-85740, that did not see any combat time but was sold as surplus - for $750 - at the end of WWII. Details of the ship, as reported by the EAA, are located here: https://www.eaa.org/en/eaa/about-eaa/eaa-media-room/eaa-b-17-aluminum-overcast-media-room/eaa-b-17-aluminum-overcast-history I was one of the first to arrive that morning, and was booked on her first flight of the day. That meant that I got to spend a good amount of time crawling around, inside and out. I was also onboard for preflight, engine start and run-up and a lovely flight through perfect weather over the north Georgia mountains. I was sadly not as thorough as I might have been in documenting the ship and the experience - I was too busy being in awe of the ship and some living B-17 aircrew who came to visit. Regardless, here are the pictures I have from that day:

  3. B-17G Sentimental Journey

    Sentimental Journey was up in the Great White North this week. The fam took the hour and a half drive to see it. I don't get many (read: any) opportunities to see old warbirds, so this was pretty cool. My first time seeing a Fortress, and while not my favourite bomber, she's gone up a few notches. Excuse the random nature of the photography; I was too excited to be systematic. I hope these are of some help to those of you making the new HK model.
