B-17 Bomber Adventure!

A B-17 bomber briefly stopped over in our city for a few days so we took a quick tour of the historic aircraft. This bomber is one of only fourteen of these bombers is still flying today.  Pretty neat to look around and actually see this restored aircraft.
 The B-17 & the guys!
 I'm sure this coming toward you would be intimidating!
 The size of the aircraft is visible with the guys standing under it!
 A looking at the geese fly over!
 The guns were impressive.
 More guns!

A living piece of history, To think that hundreds of young men went to their deaths in machines such as those so that we might be free today. They gave there tomorrows for our todays.
