    Hello, I'm writing to ask if anybody out there can help. My trusty landrover has given up the ghost and has had to go in for repair. I was going down to Duxford this weekend to see the B17 display. Is there anybody from the Liverpool area going to Duxford this weekend and can offer a lift or a solution to my problem.

    I can't miss this one, not with the possibility of three B17's being there.

    Will share petrol cost etc etc, thanks, (desperate).

    Cheers for that, I hope so.

    Probably will never be so many B17's at Duxford again.

    Thanks for your kind words.

    I did see SallyB fly some years ago at Duxford, went inside it, fantastic. I've let my membership of the SallyB Preservation group and supporters club lapse due to commitments overseas.

    I see what you mean reference the new SallyB engine refit and failure.

    Still, the Liberty Belle will be there, even if they don't fly it's just great to be there and see them in the raw.

    Fantastic aircraft, just love em!!!!!!!!

    There were four B-17's at an Air Show in Geneseo, NY when I was young. I have the pictures my family took. It's my favorite heavy bomber of World War 2. I have 3 B-17's under construction right now. 2 in 1/48 scale and 1 a D varient in 1/72nd. I hope that you were able to make it to Duxford.
