B17 Bomber

Fancy a flight in a B17 bomber?  This weekend you can have a flight in Osceola but it will cost you $470 per person.
Although there were 12,700 built only 14 are still flying.

Only 14 still flying - that's not bad for a heavy bomber - about 60 to 70 years old .

Still not many though considering how many there once were. Amazing aircraft though, the ball turrets always fascinated me for some reason!
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

The B17 was operating out of here today.  An interesting visit I guess:

Fascinated to see that Artmo's link included an Aerocar in its line-up.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
