|John & B-17G|
The B-17G was of special interest. You may have read the previous blog entries regarding my mom's brother, my Uncle Jule (Juke), who survived the war only to be killed on July 20th, 1946 in a post war accident when two B-17G's clipped wings while searching for downed aircraft off Coiba Island, Republic of Panama. I will include links about the accident and Uncle Jule below.
So enjoy a few pics of of these wonderful old Warbirds on this Memorial Day weekend, and please reflect on all the men and women who have been lost in service to our country.
Starting with a few pics and will probably add more as I go.

|Dual cockpit/dual seater so you can take a ride. I watched a couple guys check off a bucket list item at $2,200 for 30 minutes or 3,200 for a full hour.|
