Thread: Around the World in a B-17

  1. #1

    Default Around the World in a B-17

    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!

    Great shots of that B-17 If Ernie was your copilot, I bet he would have said "Gee, my ass is sure getting tired" a few dozen times.

    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.

    I weighed my options and decided to head to Korea first.

    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.
