Two B-17 Flying Fortresses chase each other through the skies over 2008 Flying Legends Airshow. The lead aircraft is “Liberty Belle” which was sadly lost June 13, 2001 after a forced landing (and subsequent fire) in a corn field. Happily, all crew and passengers were unharmed and able to exit the plane safely. Photo by Pete.
