My dad was a flight engineer and top turret gunner on a B-17 in WWII. I had the opportunity to go up in a classic flying fortress a few years ago and spend some time in every crew position. The views from top turret and the navigator/bombardier position in the nose are fantastic.

Geotgous . best b- 17 shot i have ever seen.
Beautiful shot! I love these old planes.
My father-in-law was shot down over Italy as a B-17 co-pilot. All crewmembers were able to bail out and survived though some were captured. About three years ago, a ball turret gun was found 300' down on the bottom of a volcanic lake (Lake Bolsena). Very interesting story about the crew's "adventures" and how the remains of the plane were eventually linked to my father-in-law and his crew. There's a book coming out about it written by the Italian man who recovered the ball turret. You can Google it too...it was on Discovery.
Beautiful picture, I hope the sacrifices of our past heroes will never be forgotten and appreciated.

I think it's "Aluminum Overcast" from the CAF in Midland, Texas.
Gorgeous restoration - awesome just listening to them fire up the engines !
A Beautiful Bird...........................

Awesome picture of a great plane. Does anyone know if those are two 50 cal machine guns protruding out of the sides of the plane in the nose? If so, were these added later in the war to help fight off German fighters whose tactic was to attach from the front?

Yea it would be nice if shooters would identify their aircraft; and failing the ability to do so, ask.

Most beautiful A/C to ever grace the skies. I have often thought of asking Boeing to retool and build a commerative aircraft as a memorial to the brave young men who flew these birds.

She is a B-17G (identifiable by the bendix chin turret under the nose. Yes, those are .50 caliber machine guns; most Flying Fortresses had at least 10 firing from varying positions.

As mentioned in some of the previous comments, the B-17 has the name "Aluminum Overcast". I took this photo in May, 2014, at the Spirit of St Louis Airport Air Show in Chesterfield, MO (suburb of St Louis).
Bellissima foto. Grande aeroplano !!!

Great image John - shutter speed looks spot on and the crop enhances photo. The B17 like the Lancaster, Mustang, Spitfire and Hurricane has become a timeless classic.

John please include information thanks.
Magnificent capture.

There's a great photo. The WW2 Warbirds never loose the beauty of design and function.
John Yarno
Every time I see one of these, I am reminded this was the bomber that won the war in Europe. These were the birds that went in in daylight, when you could see your target, and bombed the hell out of Germany. You may disagree with me, but God bless the brave crews who died by the hundreds on each and every raid, to inch us a bit closer to the end.
Peter Maas
very nice photo. Another beauty of World War II.
