Last Friday Bruce had the thrill of flying in a B17 to celebrate his 74th birthday. He belongs to the EAA which sponsors these flights. The following was taken from the offical site:
Fly the Fortress!
EAA is offering historic flight experiences in its beautifully restored B-17G Flying Fortress “Aluminum Overcast.” This aircraft is an example of the American heavy bomber that helped turn the tide of battle in World War II. Fly a mission back in time and feel the might of this magnificent aircraft, just as those brave young men did more than 50 years ago
