I couldn't help looking at him in a different light after that because from that day forward Joe didn't limp in my eyes, he stood 8 ft tall, head and shoulders above everyone else!
I wonder if that was over my house before it came up your way Jim. I was on the back deck fairly early and I could hear a multi engine radial engine plane lumbering along. It was at low altitude skirting behind a low Mtn and I never did catch sight of it. Would have loved to have seen it.
Extreme NE TN/W NC ya'll. 😁
Tough old Warbird.
Lost two cousins that were gunners on the B-17. One over the water not far from New Guinea, and the other one there in its jungle.
I thought B-17s had 2 engines. Unless my eyes are playing tricks on me, I see 4 engines in the original pic. So is it a B-24 or did they make some B-17s with 4 engines???
