So yesterday afternoon, I heard the sound of multiple radial engines overhead...and low.
Looking up, I saw a B-17 flying overheard, in the pattern for Lakefront Airport.
It's there this weekend, along with lots of other warbirds, for the World War two Airpower Expo.
It kept circling the pattern for about half an hour, flying low over my house every time. Finally I had to call up the airport and complain.
ME: "Hey, airport...there's been a B-17 bomber practically orbiting my house for half an hour!"
KNEW: "And you're calling because it's annoying you?"
ME: No! I'm calling because it STOPPED. Get it back up there, man...I was just settling into my lawn chair for the show!"
Alas, they were not horribly accommodating. So I guess that means that I'll have to go out there and see it and the others tomorrow...with my camera of course, just for all of you who can't be there.
Meanwhile, today it keeps flying over my office...and I'm not getting any work done because I have to keep going out on the patio to watch it.
