Artist's Description

One of the few B-17s that is still airworthy was flying low and slow above the Susquehanna river over Williamsport in central Pennsylvania.

After enlarging several shots I got of this Boeing “Flying Fortress”, I was able to identify the tail markings and nose art as belonging to the “Sentimental Journey”. This B-17G bomber is based at the Confederate Air Force, Arizona Wing, in Mesa, AZ.

The “G” version is easily identified by the “Chin Turret” under the nose of the craft. I understand that there were only thirteen B-17s (all “types”) that were registered as “airworthy” when I captured this photo. The original “Memphis Belle” became the fourteenth flying B-17 sometime in 2010.
