Great pics man.
My grandad flew one of those back in WWII.
I got one of those guage meters from the cockpit that he gave me when I was younger.

I have pics of a B-25, but I didn't post any of them.

A/B-26s had completely straight wings. They don't have the bend that B-25s have coming out of the fuselage.

The planes pictured above are a B-17 and a B-24. The B-24 is the one with oblong engine shrouds and a split tail.

(they made YB-24 Privateers with single tails, but you won't see many of them)

uhh, yah I know what the B17 Flying Fortress, B24 Liberator, B25 Mitchell, B26 Marauder are..

WWII was/is one of my favorite subjects.. I still have a pilots manual for a B17 somewhere and it is fun to sit and stare at the cockpits and imagine firing it up...

That one has a chin turret so would make a B17G if I remember correctly...

Was asking if you had any pics, please?

I would imagine so. Getting shot and then falling out the bottom....that would suck . I think they gave them chutes though right?

A lot of guys would not wear their parachutes. It took up too much room inside the turret.

It costs anywhere between $300-$400, but you can go for a 30 minute ride on these bombers.

I've been for a ride on the Liberty Belle, which is a different group.
