"Nine-O-Nine," a Douglas-built B-17G painted as USAAF 231909/OR-R/A is making a gracefully fly-by before landing at Austin. This beautifully restored B-17 is owned by the Collings Foundation. She has stopped over Austin for three days making her way toward the "Wings of Freedom Tour 2004" with Consolidated B-24J Liberator (NX224J). Dedicate this shot to Mr. Toshiharu Sato in Japan who loves this magnificent bird.

The B-17 was the world's first supermodel. It's a beautiful shot of maybe the most beautiful airplane ever. Not bad for a bird that will be 75 in July 2010...

Indeed a beautiful plane. Manages to be both elegant and menacing in appearance.

When I was at Embry-Riddle, Daytona Beach somewhere back in 1995/96, I made also some pictures of this beautiful machine. Glad it still flies...
