Aluminum Overcast…

By Bob-O

I love living near our municipal airport here in Georgetown, Texas. I get to see some interesting sights. Actually, interesting aircraft.

I have become a fan of Aluminum Overcast. A flying piece of history in the form of a B-17G with four 1,200 hp radial engines that sounds like a thousand Harley Davidson’s thundering down the road when she flies over.

You can actually take a flight on this wonderful piece of history or you can take a tour of the aircraft. The most information can be found at the official website http://www.b17.org

Check out their website and appearance schedule and take a flight on a piece of history. Learn what it was like for the men of WWII. Quite an awe inspiring experience. I have other photographs on my facebook page as well (Aircraft Photos).Thank you for stopping by and God Bless.

Peace, Love, and Happy Flying,
