Flying Fortress B-17 at St Pete Airport ...

The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress is a World War II bomber used primarily in Europe.
B-17s from the Eighth Air Force participated in countless missions from bases in England, often lasting for more than eight hours, and struck at targets deep within enemy territory. Because of their long-range capability, formations of B-17s often flew into battle with no fighter escort, relying on their own defensive capabilities. (Jan 30th 2015).

Below are tour photos ... and by luck, the next day the B-17 flew over Redington Beach and we were there with camera in hand to capture the under belly!
