I just got to take a ride on a B-17G bomber! It was totally awesome! I have lots of pictures to share but I have to upload them later. Oh, well. But the ride was definitely worth the money I spent on the ticket. Ah, why not. I guess I can put up a couple pictures, I have the time.
This particular model was used mainly in World War II and was taken out of commission shortly after the war ended. These bombers are now mostly seen in war movies. There are only twelve B-17s that are still used for flying presently.
The one I visited never saw combat because it was built too late, but it's still a valuable part of history.
