The walkway across the bomb bay is very narrow I recall.

Did you get any nice pictures ?

Chuck the actual Memphis Belle is in the USAAF Airbase at Dayton Ohio and is not flying...It would be a dream to see here take to the air again.

It's be interesting to see which B17 is flying over Massachusetts. I bet they pull the wheels up over Lynn and check the hub caps are still on ha ha !
Yes, I sat up in the bombardier's seat for a while and the walkway through the bomb bay IS very narrow.

I took a bunch of photos and videos. Have to find them and post a few.

Aluminum Overcast is the EAA's plane. Another B-17 that does tours and rides is Nine-O-Nine owned by the Collins Foundation in Stow Mass. That's probably the one Chuck saw. They also have the only routinely flying B-24 left and you can get a ride in that, too!!!

A list of Airworthy B-17s in the USA, but most don't travel or offer rides :

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Yup, the 9-0-9 it was along with a B-24 Liberator and a P-51.
Hopefully they'll come by again in 2015.
