What a beautiful symbol of American design and manufacturing. It's almost a shame we advanced with time. I can only imagine what it must have been like when you could look up and see fifty or more flying overhead.

It is amazing the difference of just sixty (60 years) years how times have really changed between war planes of World War Two when a bomber like B-17G is carrying some 10,000 pounds of bombs had no guidance to the target. Today sixty year later some of our existing fighter aircraft carry that much in ordnance and every bomb can be guided to a specific target.

Gorgeous photo of "Sentimental Journey" :-)

"No guidance?" I suspect the pathfinders, navigators, and bombardiers that flew those WWII missions would strongly disagree with that.

Yes, I know you mean precision guided ordnance, but still...

Yes, it is a gorgeous photo. I've got one somewhere taken about '87 at KCID with SJ on static display against the sunset. The wife and I went back out to the airport a day or so after the show and watched SJ and Gunfighter II make a pass down the flight line as they departed. Really nice. Diamond Lil, then painted in desert pink, was also supposed to depart, but had a mechanical that prevented it.

Obviously these things left no impression. :D
