I knew I wasn’t seeing things. Yesterday I thought I saw a B-17 flying low over the city but it was from a distance and I was a more than little tired.
Anyway, that’s the same B-17 I took a flight on in 1999 when it was here. Rides were only $350 then. They’re $425 now. However, it’s well worth the price if you’re a historical aviation buff. If that's too much, head out to airport to look at it on the ground and maybe take a tour. Otherwise, keep looking up today and tomorrow between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM as it will be flying over the city periodically during those times. Here's what you're looking for:
Also be sure to check out the photo gallery associated with the online SJ-R story. I have a bunch of similar photos from 1999. I really need to get my scanner working again; I have a backlog of all kinds of non-digital pics to share.
Update: At 11:14 - B-17 spotted heading south over the city
