A Fellow Warbird Fan

Today, the photoblogger Telstar Logistics shares with us pictures from his ride aboard the B-17 Nine o’ Nine, a 60-year-old bomber aircraft operated by the Collings Foundation out of Stow, Massachusetts. You may recall that I took a ride aboard another Collings aircraft, a B-24 called — at that time, anyway — the Dragon and His Tail, and I absolutely concur with Telstar’s assertion that one of these flights is worth every penny of the $400 charge. It’s an amazing thrill, and the closest thing to actual time travel I’ve ever experienced.

Telstar’s complete photo set is here; photos of my ride on the Dragon are here (just for comparison’s sake, of course!)
