Hello, I've returned from the depths of Hell itself to notify you all that I will be taking a ride in a Boeing B-17G tomorrow! Is there anything that you blokes want me to do for you? Such as grabbing some pictures or what not? Will any of you be there? It's at Felts Field, Spokane, Washington. I doubt many of you can find the patience to tolerate my presence, but if you want to see me I'll be in uniform; it's that of a US Army Technical Sergeant, my grandfather's. I just got a new garrison cap today for it too!

I think that B17 was in Oregon last month or so. I was considering getting a ride on it, but I just didn't have the money.

Hope you have a good time!

  I figure that I will, thank you! Strangely enough, doing this reminded me of a quote from William Avery Bishop:

"...it's clean up there! I'll bet you don't get any mud or horse shit on you up there. If you die, at least it would be a clean death."

Yeah, it'd be clean alright... if you turned into an instant fireball. Otherwise, I can prepare to meet the Earth in one of the most harrowing of ways. Still, being the B17, I'd trust that thing with my life seeing what their safety record is.

OOH! Also while I'm up there, I'll keep an eye out for "Neuroi" too.

From my mother's sleep I fell into the State,
And I hunched in its belly till my wet fur froze.
Six miles from earth, loosed from its dream of life,
I woke to black flak and the nightmare fighters.
When I died they washed me out of the turret with a hose.

The day has arrived.

Don't worry folks, I haven't forgotten you and am working on the pictures. Actually, it's a long video about 45 minutes long which I can take stills from, seeing as I was all over the aircraft.

I like to imagine that somehow, somewhere, in some obscure parts of each of their respective countries...

There is a girl for each witch who is their real-world counterpart, but are only civilians. Admit it, there are at least some of you who have wondered and wished for this at some point. We just need to find Shirley to prove my theory. The world IS small enough, isn't it?
>> No. 776

Hah, that reminds me. My grandmothers name was Shirley (an adult during WWII), and my mothers name is Lynne. We also had some ancestors kicked out of a town for being "witches". Coincidence? Probably ;_;

...carrie from mythbusters wasn't a close enough approximation?

I wish I had them with me, I probably do some where, but I got to go around the interior of a B-24 Liberator.

I'd love to think there was a B-17 as well, but I don't remember, it was many years ago.

If any one's in the Southern US, it was at Jacksonville Air Force Base, in Arkansas.

Well, it was either there or at the Hot Springs Airfield, I'm more inclined to think it was the latter but I could be wrong, memory likes to fuck info up.

Shit, got on a tangent, I had tons of photos I shot of the interiors and exteriors of those planes. That's what I meant to say.
