Bombers Over Louisville

We live not far from the “old” Louisville airport, so the sight and sound of small aircraft are often seen and heard from our house.  Occasionally I will hear a louder, deeper noise signaling one of the twin-engine aircraft taking off and I usually will turn to look at them.  They come in all sorts of shapes.

CVH and I were out in the garden today, picking vegetables.  I heard an airplane approaching that was clearly not a small single engine craft, so I looked up.  In a moment, over the trees, came a B-17 Flying Fortress.  It slowly banked by our neighborhood and then flew off to the west.  I said to my wife, “Now there’s something you don’t see everyday.”

This is not my picture, but it’s just what it looked like:
