Sighting...

On my way down to UCLA today I was fortunate enough to look up just in
time to catch sight of a B-17 heading northbound, following the
14...very nice!

There have been a couple in the area lately. A silver one was at Torrance Airport a few weeks ago, & a green one (nine o nine) with a B-24 & P-51 at Hawthorne Airport a couple of weeks ago. Which one did you see?

Silver, with a blue stripe up the tail...I think it had a black square with a white letter in the middle of the stripe.
I was skydiving down at Lake Elsinore once, and as I was in freefall a close formation of a B-17, a B-24, and two P-51s (may have been a Mustang and a P-47, it was some years ago) flew by heading southbound as I fell past it, about 5-6K AGL...now *that* was a view! And the sound of all those engines - sheer music!

A whole 'nother airplane. The one at Torrance had a vertical red stripe on the tail. That make three here in two months. If you check out alt.binaries.pictures.aviation & look around 4/11, you'll see some pics I shot of it. I am currently posting pics of nine o nine.

We had Fi Fi (B 29) and a B 17F at Andrews AFB airshow a couple of weeks ago along with an SBD TBF P 51 and FM 2 etc.
I took some shots if anyone is interested I can post them on abms.
