Why are you reporting this puzzle?






This B-17G is one of the last ones built at the end of WWII. Never saw action but became a rescue ship then was used with remote controls during Atomic testing in the pacific. After cooling down the Collings Foundation obtained it, completely restore her to flying condition. Then named her after the original Nine O Nine which completed 140 missions over Germany without loosing a single crewman. oh, by the way, I took a one hour flight in her. A dream of a lifetime!

Yes she was lost.
Fortunately for me, I was able to take a flight on board for my birthday in 2003.
I have some great pics and the memories of course.

Sadly, this aircraft was lost in a fatal crash recently.
