B-17G "Nine-O-Nine": Never forgotten.
A few months ago, one of the few remaining B-17G Flying Fortress airplanes crashed during a tourist flight in Connecticut. Sadly, seven people and the plane were lost.
When I read the news, I thought the name of the plane sounded familiar. I remembered shooting some photos at a local airport many years ago, but couldn't remember exactly when that was and so I couldn't readily find the photos.
Today I was browsing through my archives looking for something else and found the shots I made at Dunnellon airport back in 2006. This is the same bomber that crashed in CT. I wouldn't say these are my best work or even that I was going for any kind of artistic look, but I think it's important for us, as photographers and documentarians of history, to maintain our images so airplanes like this will never be completely lost to time.
