For nostalgic, WWII vintage aircraft fans, the Tacoma Narrows Airport will be having its 2nd Annual Wings and Wheels Event on Sunday, July 1st. One of the big stars of the show will be a B-17 “Flying Fortress” that one can take a flight ride on. (Check the airport’s website for more info on this and flight prices.) The WWII style warbird comes from Phoenix, Arizona, where it is part of the Commemorative Air Force.
Although I don’t have plans on going, I have been to the airport before when it had a “Flying Fortress” on display and they were offering flight rides as well. These magnificent, air machines are always a real treat to see and to be able to snap a few photos of. Here are a few that I took some years ago. I was also very fortunate to witness it take off and land!
