A B-17 and a B-24 will be on display Monday and Tuesday. Check out my post in the Hometown forum. [url]http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=8&f=20&t=171128 [/url]

If you have any interest in WWII please, please go tour these aircraft. You will be amazed at what our Fathers and Grandfathers went through in these things. Drafty, open spaces in the back and beer can thin skin. The B-24 will shock you at how narrow the body is. The tail gunner in the B-17 had to take off his parachute to get to the area where the guns are, with no seat to sit on on top of that. He had to take his chute off to get out of it too. You had to be a tiny man to be a ball turrent gunner in either aircraft. There are very few of these planes still flying, go see this while you can.
