This is a restored authentic WWII B-17G Flying Fortress Bomber. It is just one of the eleven flyable B-17 bombers in the world today. I was fortunate enough to see it yesterday at the old Chanute Air Force Base in Rantoul, IL. It was breathtaking to see it fly!

    Icnic subject, classic edit. What model aircraft is this? I attended the 70th Reunion of the Doolittle Raiders this spring. The B-25 flyover was spectacular. (I uploaded a couple of shots of that reunion.) Nice work!
