I had the great fortune of seeing a B-17 this morning at an executive airport just south of Raleigh.  This particular B-17 was used in the filming of the Memphis Belle movie from back in the early 1990’s.  What a gorgeous warbird.

What a great photo of the unmistakeable profile of the P-38.  The profile of the P-38 made it easier for gunners on bombers to differentiate between friend and foe.  However, the profile also made it easier for German, Italian, or Japanese pilots to identify it from far away.
Whatever the case, this is one beautiful airplane, especially when in a turn from the perspective of the camera.
