That is nuts!!  drooling.gif

The problem is you have to either find monitors without bezels (which are rare), DIY by removing the bezels, or like he has; a custom job.

Both were neat videos thumbsup.gif

Me too. There's just something about that big bird. I can't quite put my finger on it, but I've loved the B-17 since I was a kid. A few years ago I was actually able to climb into one of those fabulous machines. Let me tell you... they were made for men of much smaller stature than I. That fellow in the tailgun position needed to be an anorexic jockey type. Man! That is one cramped spot. The plane I actually was aboard was The Colings Foundation's Nine o' Nine. It's still flying, too.



Watch (and listen) to this cool vid of Sentimental Journey's pilots firing up those four monstrous Pratt & Whitney Hornets... 750 horses per engine, baby! They don't make 'em like that anymore. The sound of these engines is deafening. The ground vibrates when they're running them up to speed on the tarmac. It gets the blood flowing. Of course, if you were a young waist gunner in 1943, you'd be whizzing in your shorts about that time, too. What men they were!

As a person who spent over 21 years around Military Aviation, I always enjoyed the local airshows and speaking with the guys that used to work on those mighty war birds in their time and comparing notes so to say at the differences between the aircraft we worked on.  Nice looking desktop Eric.  thumbsup.gif

A good friend of mine was a navigator on a B-29.  Not as purty as the 17.  Just finished a book about a pilots experience flying the 29's during ww2....
Combat?  Can you say "Sgt. Saunders?"  Great show!!!
