Around the World in a B-17


Recommended Posts

Flew from my area in eastern North America, across the continent, crossed over to Russia and down into Japan. Only then did I think maybe I should grab a few screen shots.

Beautiful lady the B-17. That's a livery I've never seen before. Very interesting!

Calgary airport called. They found your luggage. Come back! ;)

Hope to see much more from your impressive travels. Against the prevailing winds too! A brave man. -- Bob

After making an embarrassingly awful approach, I've landed in Hiroshima. Soon I'll be heading out to either China or Korea, haven't decided which way to go. I'll have to take a look at the map.

Ah now that you posted day shots, I understand the repaint you have on this graceful lady, its stars and stripe. Very innovative.

 

Godspeed and safe journey.

Looks more like pajamas to me but...

 

It isn't a repaint, this is one of the several default schemes.

 

 

Travelled to Shanghai and then on to Hong Kong

When your Job and Family members require you be available daily, it doesn't mean your mind can't travel the world in spirit. Enjoy every takeoff and landing in every strange place - maybe someday in the distant future you'll embark on a journey like this one, and you won't need aluminum wings with spars and rivets.

 

Thank you for the post and photo - enjoyed it!

Flew to London and wanted to grab a few shots, but I was running on fumes. So I landed and topped up, then took a few before heading north. This is the last leg before I have to make thee treacherous voyage across the ocean.

That shot of the Tower Bridge is probably my favourite of this series so far.
