Aren't the B17 and B24 owned by the Yankee Air Force or Museum? I remember
when I was a kid, how the B17 owned by them tried to take off from the small
local airport where I grew up, and it crashed, forcing them to park it there
in a hanger for a year, while they repaired it. They used to charge
admission to watch them work and to walk through it to help defray the costs
of the repairs...

How did we get off onto this topic??? ;-)
