The Big guys fly high

Before we did the air to air flight with the B17, the group stood out on the ramp as the B17 and B25 did a fly by for the crowd at CAF in honor of veterans weekend. The B17 went up first and did one fly by. It was big, loud, and shined like nothing else in the sky. One of the best parts was seeing the bomb bay doors open and a guy looking down at us. The B17 flew high so belly shots were all we got, not a problem more was to come.

The B25, being of considerable smaller size and noise, flew much lower providing for some nice side shots. Back to panning, it’s a lot more fun panning with planes then with gulls. Nothing like Big Bad Bombers.
