Wouldn't you love the opportunity to ride on one of those B-17's? With my luck though, I'd probably get air sick as soon as the wheels left the ground! biggrin.gif

I went to see the B-17 this morning, took the tour thru the plane and went thru the Navy & WWI aircraft museum & the new Air Zoo building. Got to talk to a couple of the veterans for awhile. Had a great time and was well worth going.B17a.jpg
