8-)This morning, as I was leaving Walmart, a B-17G was taking off from Jasper Bell Field. We are having our annual air show this weekend and the B-17 was shooting touch and goes on rwy 36. A right hand pattern brought it directly over the parking lot at about 1000 feet. All four big round engines were purring away. Wish I had my camera with me. I hung around for him to make three passes.
I know what you mean Jesse. Last year, I was in Walmart, and I heard what I knew was a large radial engined aircraft. I was all the way in the back of the store, so I had to hurry to get out in time to see it. There was a B-17 circling the town with its landing gear down. The reason for the landing gear was that when they were in Billings, the pump for the landing gear had conked out, and they hadn't gotten a replacement yet, so they flew from Billings to Bozeman with the gear down.
