B-17 Flight Gallery


After landing.

The landing took me by surprise; while I brought your attention to the fact that it was lowering its landing gear, I failed to notice it at the time (I'm pretty sure Aluminum Overcast, a B-17 I've seen take off and land a dozen times or more, keeps its gear down in flight). I didn't realize it had landed until I hear the squealing of the brakes.
