  2. Ah, my favorite bomber.

    My one regret is that I didn't score a ride in EAA's one back when they'd let people sit in the right seat for six minutes and then give you a log entry for B-17 time.

    1. More details (not spam): B-17 "My Buddy" hit by AA and in distress. The story is of a surviving crewman and his letter to another survivor.
