  1. Spectacular work. I just re-read Martin Caidin's "The Flying Forts." In it, Caidin chronicles how he became involved with resurrecting three B-17s that had been left to rot for years in the Arizona desert. They had become the home of birds and snakes, the tires had rotted and the wheels had sunk into the ground up to the axles, the fabric surfaces were history, they were in terrible shape.

  8. I scanned eBay, the 1990 something B/N is still kinda scarce...
  9. It looks like I'll have to scan them, I can't get a clear enough photo...
  10. I will work on that soon, I've had a few trying days...
  11. Yeah, I noticed that. I was just thinking of discussing that with the management...
