The wait was worth it!

At least for me. I was given the gift of a ride in one of the only remaining Boeing B-17s a year ago Christmas and due to some maintenance issues the ride had to wait until today. Even today the early flight scheduled for 11AM was pushed until nearly 3:30 due to some minor adjustments. During the ride we, the five passengers, were allowed to sit/observe from various positions within the aircraft. I was lucky enough to ride in the bombardier seat for the take-off. The web address linked to the title tells about the aircraft and those who keep it going. The pictures and videos will tell the rest of the story.
