One of our favorite images and the cover of our 2012 bombers calendar "the movie Memphis Belle" B-17 and Paige. A cloudy stormy day that lead to beautiful lighting when the sun peeked through. This image is now available in our posters section! https://www.etsy.com/shop/WarbirdPinupGirls #memphisbelle #b17flyingfortress #classicbeauty #classywomen #retrofashion #aviationlovers #aviationphotos #wwiiaircraft #pinupgirls #warbirds #americalhistory #americanaircraft

Not Memphis Belle… B17 Sally B has the Memphis Belle markings on the starboard side from when it was involved in filming the movie (very commonly asked). It’s also a ‘g’ model with the nose turret unlike the real Belle which was an f. Seen at the Battle of Britain airshow in 2021 at IWM Duxford as the gear starts to retract on take off and one of the crew takes a look at the warbirds lined up on the fright line. #b17flyingfortress #flyingfortress #b17 #warbird #warbirds #instaaviation #excellentaviation #aviation #aviationphotography #iwmduxford #ww2aircraft

Many of you remember the saga of our #3 engine replacement last year. Well, that engine is still at the rebuilder. Having a completed backup engine helps ensure we can continue to tour season after season, so we need your help to finish up the engine and bring it home to the hangar. A donation of any size during the #12PlanesOfChristmas can help a lot. Click on our #LinkInBio today. 😎 #WarbirdWednesday #CAF1957 #B17 #FlyingFortress #TexasRaiders #B17FlyingFortress #WWII #WorldWarII #Aviation #History #Heritage #Legacy #Warbird #Aircraft #Airplane

It's day 8 and although there have been fewer shows this year, there have still been plenty of photographic opportunities for enthusiasts. Night shoots still remain hugely popular and have been a nice addition to a few shows this year, @abingdonair_countryshow being one of them 📷 @dominic_vickery #b17 #b17flyingfortress #sallyb #memphisbelle #warbird #bomber #abingdon #avgeek #avgeeks #historic #ww2 #aviationphotography #nightshooters #afterdark #aviation #aviationdaily #aviationlovers #plane #planespotting #planespotters
