Yesterday was outside digging up an area for some landscaping when I heard this guy coming. He came over the trees pretty darn low and slow.

I remembered I had my camera in my truck and grabbed it and tried to get some pics. In the bright sunlight was hard to see the view screen but got 1 decent one.

Just curious as to what it is? B-17, B-29, B-52???

No idea where it was going but it was my 50th birthday yesterday and maybe it was just a fly over for me lol[

Also back in the day on their bombing runs I would hope they flew a LOT higher and faster

The B-17 you saw was the "Yankee Lady". She flies air tours through Michigan.

I lived and grew up in Woodford.
I watched most of the airshows from my back garden. Sneaked into quite a few ;-)

I returned home last weekend to see the place mostly demolished. Very sad times!

Technically anything you don't know what the hell it is and is in the air is an UFO

I'd love to see a B-17 in flight... my Dad was a B-17 pilot and bombardier in the 8th Air Force (had me very late in life, btw)... flew 25 missions before the U.S. was in the war by joining the R.A.F. (underage) through Canada and then switched over to the U.S. Army Air Force and flew another 25 missions out of England in the bloody early air war over 'fortress Europe.' He was in the Hell's Angels group... and incredibly lucky.

Every single time his crew had a leave and someone else took their plane up, it got shot down... every time... in fact, one of the stories about a crewman falling 30,000 feet (without a parachute) onto a bog in France ,and living, was out of my Dad's B-17.. .they have the nose art on display in a French Village, too, from that crash of their B-17 during a leave.

He had some stories.. .when one could cajole him to talk about it at all... apparently with 1/3 casualties, war wasn't 'cool stories' for a kid, but misery and utter madness... even at tens of thousands of feet.

However, his love for the B-17 was real... that airframe got him home many times with most of it gone, chugging along on one remaining engine, dropping pieces into the channel with frozen blood covering everything and the Luftwaffe linign up their rookies for easy target practice on the crippled bomber ...sigh, well, without the Boeing engineers of the 1930's, I wouldn't be here, heh. Rugged, great engineering.

Nice pic, too. Sorry... learned to love B-17's, heh.

*Also, in the spirit of ATS, he got a Silver Star for spotting a camouflaged German factory smokestack through heavy cloud cover when in the lead bomber for a major mission... and swore it was due to a psi-power that could dissolve clouds he discovered that day through utter desperation, as he was in the lead plane, his friends were being shot from the sky and they could not find their target ... he concentrated and a moving window through the clouds appeared through his bombsite and let him spot the target factory smokestack... sounds whacky and he knew it, but he showed me that 'power' when I was a teen by 'making' several doughnut shaped clouds as a demonstration, to my astonishment... all I can say is you had to be there, but it convinced me psi-powers weren't hooey... and my button down, businessman, sober veteran Dad wasn't totally crazy... heh.
