B-17G Sentimental Journey

Recommended Posts

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.
