The group came to Dayton this Monday-Wednesday and I went out and took some pictures. After I left, I parked just ahead of the runway where they would be landing. The B-17 flew over me (by like 20 feet!) twice and the Mustang made one high speed pass and then another when it landed. Anyway here are the pics.

I got inside the B-24. The B-17 was too crowded and then they did the flights. Im a pretty skinny guy and there were some places on the B-24 that I had to go sideways and suck in to squeeze by. I can't imagine trying to get out quick if there was an emergency.
