Enjoy the POV of #1. Wonderful aircraft. Like the detail and processing,

The Ericsson Aircraft Collection, Madras Oregon, has NL 3701G in its collection but never been able to see it outside. Last visit it was flying on tour.

I like the #1 as the composition keeps the eye traveling around the image.
the stark sky is a bit too stark for my eyes; I don't know if a little sky with or without clouds would help or distract??
regards, tom

Absolutely love #1. A grand old bird with a storied past (one of which is that my wife's dad was shot down in one, but survived)... Mike

According to my late uncle, who was a bombardier, many an airman in 42/43 would have loved the forward turret of the G. The MEs would roar straight at the B17s as they held steady on a bombing run. He also noted that one had to complete (not attempt) 25 missions before rotating back. The casualty rate early on was about 1 plane for every 25 in the air. Need 25. 1 in 25 lost. The numbers were scary to say nothing of the flack, the MEs, the FWs, and just plain breaking down somewhere too, too far away.

He didn't talk too much about it, but he never left Kansas and never got on a plane for the rest of his life.
