Something you don't see everyday

Group,
I just was outside and saw a B29 fly over at a low altitude. Very low.
I live in the CA bay area and it appeared to be headed north.

Saw it in Phoenix a couple of weeks ago. At first I thought it was a 17 but it didn't look quite right. Then I realized what it was.

They have even flown over Minnesota. Thanks Jon!

There HAS been a B-17, B-24 and B-25 trio making the rounds of western airports recently....they were at my local airport on display about three weeks ago.

Just shows you that those old beasts were built like Mack trucks - like Mack trucks used to be built, that is.. :-)

There were two old bombers giving pleasure flights from Moffatt Field. A friend was given one by his wife as an anniversary present. He was up for half an hour, and they flew around Mount Diabolo.

I'm in San Francisco - do you know if they'll be there for a few more days?

I don't, I'm sorry. I live in New York and had an excited phone call from an old friend.

how come no one is razing he** about this post being off topic???? a B-29 has nothing to do with trains. don't get me wrong i love the old war birds but they are not trains.

Fisty Nickle No one minds the occasional off topic post especially about things that might be interesting to some of the people on RMR. What folks are tired of is the messages intentionally posted to provoke off topic flame wars by trolls, and cross burning Rock Island fans with multiple personality disorders. There so many on topic things to fight about we don't need boring political and social opinion posts. Bruce

Not all of us Rock Island fans are cross burners with MPD, are we?
Not me! Me, neither! Nope. Uh-uh. Hell, no. I am.
Ok, well maybe someone in here is.

No Brian. Just the ones with Multiple Personality Disorders. Didn't mean to besmirch the great Rock Island in anyway. Bruce

give it a rest Fisty. Get a life, take that toddler thief of yours and go to a train show somewhere. Most of us might like to see a B-29, in fact, I see one every time I go to my in laws. Marty Hall
