Just sent this weeks update to jaydee......he's probably still sleeping.
Another busy weekend!!! And no red on page one!

Zrexrob's putting a kink in my attempt at TOR domination.......
Either that or I'm putting the skids to his attempt!

I'll have to start putting them a little further 'off road'.
I can't believe you didn't go snag the Volusia Bar tag!

Got up at 6 with the wife and then I did lay back-down for a few winks until the urgent care opened................ Just woke up a few minutes ago to a phone call.
Good thing most everything is caught up at work because I'm not doing much for a while. Ribs hurt pretty bad probably broke one of them also.
Not the best week-end for me, not only did I confirm my status as a certified old fart by trading the Berg back to John cause I can't kick it to life due to the knees, looks like possibly multiple fractures on top of it.
Going for xrays soon.

B17 tag....

Steve/Jaydee.... ya got the plane wrong.... It's a B-25, and I included the history of this exact plane after the picture.... sometimes we forget about the lives they lived...




pulled this info off of this website: http://www.pacificwrecks.com/aircraft/b-25/43-4380.html

Aircraft History
Built by North American. Assigned to the 1st Air Commando Group, Headquarters Squadron, to pilot Lt. Col. R. T. Smith who nicknamed the aircraft "Barbie III" after his wife, replacing his prior aircraft, B-25H "Barbie II".

Painted light olive drab over neutral gray lower surfaces. The fuselage had five diagonal white stripes (1st Air Commando Group markings) and an additional piece of armor plate was added to the left side of the cockpit.
Tape was required over the edges of the plate because of an aerodynamic anomaly that caused a whistling sound inside the cockpit, and tape fixed the problem. This tape was white in color initially, then over painted with olive drab by Weber.
At one time, bomb markings indicating combat missions were painted onto this armor plate, but later they were over painted or removed. Regular crew members included pilot Lt. Col. R. T. Smith, navigator Lt. Wes Weber, crew chief and top turret Chuck Baisden.
Wartime History
Based at Hailakandi Airfield in India and flew mission into Japanese occupied Burma during early 1944.

According to B-25 crew chief and top turret Gunner, Chuck Baisden on one mission:
"As soon as the fighters finished and got altitude above us, R. T. Smith ordered two flights into our gunnery pattern, and we commenced strafing the village. Our 75mm shells tore into the thatched buildings and literally exploded them into a thousand pieces. I would hear the heavy rattle of our six. 50 machine guns and the dull thud and jolt of our cannon, and a thousand yards away a hut (basha) would explode in a red flash and black smoke. I could see our tracers hitting the ground and ricocheting into the air. They appeared to eat their way into a basha. We averaged three bursts of machine gun fire and three cannon shells per run."

Combat Mission 48: on April 23, 1944 took off from Hailakandi Airfield on a mission against Indaw Airfield in Burma, where they bombed Japanese troop concentration and strafed a village.
Later, this B-25 continued to fly from Asansol Airfield, in India against targets in Japanese occupied Burma.

Nice find

When I was a kid I used to play in a bunker/hanger just like this at the Zephyrhills airport (WWII training field). It got razed at some point and is now gone
