I work in the Media down here in SW Florida, and maybe...just maybe, I can squeeze a ride out of em'!
They normally charge $395.00 for a ride!!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

No beans and cabbage. Be sure. And put on your Flak suit and Parachute. Just in case.

You guys are SOOOOOOOOO 20th century. I WANT VIDEO! And LOTS of it.

Failing THAT pictures will do nicely.
See?... I can go retro.

Ok, the batteries are charging on the digi cam.
Any other specifics you'd like to see?

PS= The Ball Turret, is that the belly gun, or the nose gun?

the ball turret is the 'belly gun' ....

You might want to wear ear plugs...you need protection whenever you mount an old gal like that...she has been around the block a few times, be sure.

lotsa pics, earplugs would be good because they may have removed insolation (easier to maintain without it) and try to have bulky stuff, its pretty small in there.
if u fly u may need something warm to wear aswell.
tail gunner pics would be good too..

Ok all...well, somewhat of a dissapointment.

I didnt get to fly on the thing, because some rich guy bought up all the spots for him and his friends.
There were two flights, with 9 seats on each flight.
18 seats all sold out. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif
So, I stayed on the ground when it took off...both times. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Oh, I did bring the ladder over to the B17 as it taxied in to a stop.
The prop wash was insane!!!! I thought a little rock was gonna shoot into my flippin' eye!!!!!

I took a TON of pics, and want to share them. But I'm at work now, so that will be later on tonight/tomorrow.

I also talked to some men who flew these beasts, and that may have been the most touching. None of them had any really bad memories, mostly good ones. Where they hid sandwiches aboard the plane, and other little cool facts.
...When leaving, I thanked them for their service to our country. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

....oh well...next time.
I talked with a few local members of the CAP (Civil Air Patrol) and EAA (Experimental Aircraft Assoc.)and they were more than helpful about getting me into the organization.
They said they all have planes, and would take me up sometime.
