B17 Bomber Start up and Take off
I decided to set all three of my cameras on HD this time and set them at
different zooms to film this B-17 starting up. I realize I all ready
showed this taking off but if I didn't put that in the video over time I'd
just get a bunch of complaints that I should have shown it taking off or
I usually don't use my Casio EXF1's to film HD with but they actually work
quite well. My Panasonic has very good image stabilization compared to
the Casio's. I layered the clips from the three cameras in my editor and
sync'd them up. I picked the best audio of the three clips.
Joey from LivinBoB (YT channel from my home town) was covering the
Memorial Day flight and was filming a news piece for the TV station he
works for. He got a ride in the bomber in the nose-gunner position- but
almost missed the flight.

B-17 Engine Startup and Takeoff
This is a video of "Aluminum Overcast," a World War II B-17 bomber, taken
on April 11, 2003 as the engines were being fired up, followed by taxi and
takeoff. I truly love the sound of radial engines!! The location is Wiley
Post Airport in Oklahoma City, OK.
B 17 Engine Starting Procedures
Geek alert! If you're not a total warplane nerd, this is boring. However,
if you are, this is James Kelly, an expert in the B-17 and its powerplants,
explaining the standard starting procedure for the B-17.
A Ride on the B17 'Nine O Nine'
A Ride on the Collings Foundation's WWII Era B-17 Bomber 'Nine O Nine' at
Moffett Field, CA. This plane is a replica of the original B17 nine o'
nine. Thanks to Alex for the Excellent Still Photos. See more of his work
B-24 Liberator Flight Demo... Inside and Out !
Here's my compilation of video from my flights in the Collings Foundation
B-24J Liberator. Those flights were soooo much fun you would hardly believe
it ! You need to go for a ride on all their aircraft but as far as the
bombers, the B-24 is definitely the most interesting from the historical
standpoint as far as I am concerned (and also the loudest !). The aircraft
is flown with the waist gunner panels wide open to the elements (unlike the
waist gunner positions on the B-17 and B-25 which are enclosed with
Plexiglass [historically correct}). There is also a WHOLE lot of wind
blowing through that B-24 fuselage, quite unlike the B-17 and B-25. Enjoy
the video ! For the ULTIMATE thrill, take a flight in the Collings
Foundation P-51C dual-control Mustang where (depending on your
experience and ability), you can actually take control of the aircraft for
the majority of your flight. Simply unbelievable and a dream come true !
I've done it twice (see my other videos). Thanks !
