I made the short post because I wanted to see a B-17 that happened to be in the area.

It is a really cool airplane and is actually smaller than a lot of people think.

There was a 90 year old WW2 vet that showed up and the people running the show offered him a free tour.

"No way in hell!" he replied. "Every single time I got into one of those bastards people kept trying to shoot me down! I didn't make it this far by getting into one when I didn't have to!"

To find out why the blog is pink just cut and paste this: NO ANIMALS WERE HARMED IN THE WRITING OF TODAY'S ESSAY


  1. Caf in Erie pa? I have a few pictures of the b17 and p51 redtails if you want me to send them to you.

  2. No. The plane was 'Aluminum Overcast', property of the EAA out of Oshkosh.
