A Fortress flies at Collegedale

Aluminum Overcast, the Experimental Aircraft Association’s restored B-17 bomber, made a stop near Chattanooga, Tenn., during the waning days of September. We were in town to visit family, and my father, brother and I went to the Collegedale airport the morning of Wednesday the 30th to see it. Go to my photo page to view some stills I shot, and watch the video below.

There’s more info about this plane and the organization that takes it on tour here. Be sure to check out the links down the left side and across the top.

UPDATE: On a related topic, I just found this photo gallery of the restoration of the Memphis Belle, the famous B-17 that was the first to fly 25 bombing missions in Europe. I hope Memphis wins the right to display the historic plane once the work is finished.
