    Commemorative Air Force Boeing B-17G Superfortress

    The Commemorative (nee Confederate) Air Force has chapters all over the US. Each is a repository for vintage aircraft. A couple of weekends ago, the Conroe, TX chapter flew several of its planes into the local airport in my area. The one that drew the most attention was this completely restored Boeing B-17G. It represents a model that was a major WWII contributor. In service, it carried 9,600 pounds of bombs, and defended itself with thirteen .50 caliber machine guns. The pilot was usually the "old man" in a crew of ten whose age might range from late teens to mid twenties.
