N5017N

提交时间:

The Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Aviation Foundation's "Aluminum Overcast" (N5017N, formerly 44-85740), a B-17G, taxies to the ramp at Carson City Airport (KCXP) earlier today.
This WWII-era bomber (44-85740 came off the production line too late to see actual use in the war) is wonderfully maintained and presented by the EAA. It was a privilege to capture clicks of this beautiful, and rare, military metal classic warbird. There are less than one dozen B17s still flying.
* Note the pilot looking to see if I am too close to his aircraft as he swings it around to park. (I wasn't; I was using a zoom lens to get this close-in shot.)

Very, very nice shot, Gary! Perfect shutter speeds to blur the props a bit...

Another very cool shot here Gary. And a side note, if I was taxiing something with that wide of a wing span I would be looking out too lol.

Nice shot and agree with Jim Quinn on the props!

Hi, guys, and Thanx for the comments / complis. Very much appreciated.
I was extremely excited that Aluminum O stopped by here and that I was able to see it & get some catches of it.

Without a doubt, the B-17 is the Queen when it comes to military acrft, a truly great lady

There was twenty two B 17 converted to fire tanker (borate bombers) starting in the early 1960's. Most of the B 17 were placed out of service by 1980. The ultimate "tail dragger". If you could taxi it, you could fly it. If the nose moved six inches (yaw) while taxing the tail traveled three feet in the opposite direction. As a fire bomber the roll rate was slow. Sometimes requiring both pilots on the controls and differential power to avoid hitting something hard i.e canyon wall.
