    I was up near Harry last weekend when a unfamiliar shape appeared from the east. OK you really old guys, Vietnam was my war and this is no Phantom so I have no idea what this is how about a little help with a ID.

    Well it looks like a B-17 Flying Fortress to me.


    There are not very many flying B-17's left. I cannot make out the tail insignia very well.

    Do you have a larger pic that you could email me?

    Oh yea I heard it before I saw it very different sound then most modern aircraft. Sorry Pat I don't have all that expensive glass that you Nikon guys do :D  my 828 was maxed out for this shot.

    No worries Richard. Still a good shot for such an awesome piece of flying history.

    They offer rides in these planes. I would love to do that!

  7. The aircraft is a B-17G named "Nine-O-Nine". It is owned and operated by the Collings Foundation. For more information see http://www.collingsfoundation.org/menu.htm
    It tours the country and is in Florida during the winter months. I have seen it fly past our condo in Pompano Beach
