Looked up yesterday morning, to see an odd aircraft in the distance. As it got closer, I ran for the camera.

Confederate Air Force B-17 against the blue sky.

Lots of Blue but the airplane is somewhat fuzzy. Given that you didn't have any time to prepare for this shot, I think you did great!

Fuzzy, because of a major crop. I just love those old warbirds, and I just had to post.

As you said,not too bad for the circumstances.

No less than a flying fortress! I remember once dedicating my time to make a model of this beauty along with a Messerschimit.

So do I, bahadir, and a few others as well ( B-24, Mustang, Thunderbolt, etc.) Like The Barbarian, I had just enough time to grab this shot of an odd airplane flying over my house. I guess you could call the B-17 odd because there's so few of them left, but this one - whatever it is - just looks 'plane' strange. (sorry - I couldn't resist) Can anyone identify this thing? I'm pretty sure it's not a Canadian aircraft because it lacks the highly visible call-signs required on civil aircraft in this country, and it has no visible military or other markings. Could it be a secret CIA mission? Mmmm....

An odd plane against a not-too-blue sky.
