Spent a powerful hour with Sentimental Journey, a mighty Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress -- one of the few airworthy WWII heavy bombers that remain. Interviewed a tailgunner who told me that, although it was lonely back there, he was always glad to be farthest from the fuel tanks. He survived 32 missions. Thanks to the @cafairbasearizona for keeping this wonderful ship flying! You can ride in her, too -- check out the Commemorative Air Force's Falcon Field schedule... #b17 #b17flyingfortress #flyingfortress #sentimentaljourney

The Swamp Ghost is a Boeing B-17E Flying Fortress piloted by Captain Frederick 'Fred' C. Eaton, Jr, that ditched in a swamp on Papua New Guinea during the Second World War, after a raid on ships at Japanese-occupied New Britain on February 23, 1942. While flying over Rabaul, it was intercepted and eventually, having run out of fuel, had to force-land in a remote swamp near the north coast of New Guinea. All of the crew survived the crash landing and arduous 6 week trek out. #swampghost #Boeing #flyingfortress #flying #fortress #ww2 #paupanewguinea #avpic #avgeek #avpage #avpics #avgeeks #aviator #aviation #aviators #aviation4u #aviationpic #aviationdaily #aviation_lovers #pilot #pilotlife #piloteyes #pilottalk #ww2 #ww2geek #ww2addict #ww2planes #planesofww2 #WhiskeyFoxAV
