I think I will start a gofund me acct to raise the $3800 so I could do the full bombing and strafing run :) . Damn it almost seems worth it, that would be a flight of a lifetime. :rambo3:

That would be really cool. Still one of my favorite aircraft.

Got to be up close to a B-17 at a fly-in airshow in Norwich NY about ten years ago. After seeing them in so many movies, I was surprised to see how small it actually was.

They say the movie camera puts ten pounds on people, it's alot more with aircraft. :D
