B-17 Sentimental Journey

B-17 The most fully restored B-17 Flying Fortress, Sentimental Journey, a World War II vintage bomber airplane visited North Platte this month. I joined a large crowd of people at the North Platte airport to view the B-17. I gave $5.00 for the opportunity to make my way through the vintage aircraft. Making my way through the bomb bay I thought I was going to get stuck. I was surprised at how little room the crew had in that plane. At a slow, by today’s standards, 160 mph I’m amazed that the crew made it through the often long bomb runs. See more photos here.
