No, it's not me. I wish! A google image search makes me think that's "Aluminum Overcast" -

The term 'selfie' is annoying and trivial, selfie sticks even more so.

However, in this instance, it's pure unadulterated awesome.

I love B-17s.

Here's ours:

I wasn't complaining, it was a mild attempt at levity. 'Selfie' or not, that's a great picture.

My friend flew them in WW2 and even survived being shot down.

The stories he tells..... pure awesome.



went on to become a test pilot and retire after a lifelong military career.

Hardly.

Yes, its cool because its an inflight photo of a B-17 and its certainly noteworthy to put your camera out of the aircraft but the photo taker was a passenger. U-2 pilot on here posted a better one, of himself flying somewhere well above 60,000'.

It was an awesome experience. I think it was $500 a seat. Worth it.


Link Posted: 4/23/2016 12:01:01 AM EDT
While I will admit that there is a bit of coolness in the OP pic, my over cautious self is surprised that the owner of the B17 allows that. I'd worry about the camera or the stick breaking and striking the aircraft. I know they are pretty tough, but there aren't many operational ones around.
Link Posted: 4/23/2016 12:04:08 AM EDT
I hate when people waaaayyyyy over saturate their pics like that.
