This is the bombarder’s seat in a vintage B-17 Flying Fortress, probably the most deadly and durable bomber to roam the skies during WWII. Over 12,000 of these planes were built. Most of those by Boeing, who developed the plane, the rest in a nationwide collaboration with Lockheed and Douglas. Of those, only a few remain. Some in museums, and a few (like this one) in airshows.
If you are lucky enough to attend a airshow featuring WWII era aircraft, I highly recommend you take a tour of the aircraft. They are amazing pieces of history and it is incredible to see them up close.
Below are a couple more images of this amazing aircraft.
What is this, some kind of series?
Yes, it is! Throughout 2017 I’m attempting to take a new image every day and post it to this blog. Ambitious, I know. Success is not guaranteed, but I’ll give it my all. You can see all of the images below. Just click on a thumbnail and flip through them.
