Old Airshow footage, 4 B17s startup and taxi up close
« on: March 21, 2023, 12:10:38 AM »
FOUR B-17s startup and taxi past close enough to touch.

Texas Raiders, Fuddy Duddy, Memphis Belle (Film), and Yankee Lady

There are a few fighters at the beginning as well. Wings of Eagles Airshow, August 15, 1998.

Never gets old, watching those beauties.  Wonder whose P-40 that was?

Awesome Kenneth!  Thanks for posting.  Did I see a B-17F there?  The last one to taxi.....had no chin guns.  Gimme the olive drab ones all day long.

Hajo, It's the B17G that was modified for the Memphis Belle movie and was still painted as the Belle.

Oboe, I believe it was the Genesco Museum's or the Reading Museum.. but it was 25yrs ago so it could be anywhere.
