Talk about being lucky..........

I have always loved older aircraft, and some of you may know that the Air Force Memorial was/is being dedicated this weekend in DC. Apparently I live directly under the flight path of the route followed by some of the aircraft flown in the flyover for that dedication. Yesterday a b-17 flew over both going and coming back to downtown. This morning a b-24 circled the house and just now(10:05) the b-17 went over again......... The sound of those big round engines is something to behold, and seeing two of the biggest aircraft of their time in the air is something you'll never forget.
Just thought I'd share......... naturally the batteries in the camera went south when I ran outside, so no photo's unless they come back the same way they went in.............
