    B-17 'Flying Fortress' 75th Anniversary Part of Big Celebration at EAA AirVenture 2010

    I cant wait all those DC-3's and then top it off with B-17's. Should be a very cool year. I better start dusting off my hiking gear for all the walking Im going to have to do this year. :D

    No worries, Aaron, we got WWII weekend! :) Its nice. Well, it won't have 5,000 C-47s but there will be at least 2 T-6s! well, one at least. But we're all going, right?.....right.

    Wonder how many Fortress' will eventually show up? That will be amazing.

    Yeah, but when I want to do something fun and cool, she shoots me down. She has become a Ace doing that.
