Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress (N5017N)


The Experimental Aircraft Association's "Aluminum Overcast" (N5017N, a B-17G) swings into its parking position on the ramp at Reno Stead Airport at 12:45 yesterday afternoon (30 Mar 2017). Its arrival from Napa, CA (KAPC) was delayed due to heavy snow squalls in the area around Stead and Reno, but a well-timed arrival enabled the crew to land at RTS between the squalls. The bomber will be at RTS until Sunday.

Hi, Isaac. Thanx. I was out there for over 4 hours awaiting its arrival. It was due in midmorning but the winds were gusting at over 55 MPH and the snow squalls kept rolling thru the area reducing the visibility to well below minimums. In fact, I was there a total of (almost) six hours ... and in all that time this was the only aircraft that landed. I was permitted lone access on to the ramp after it was parked (the media flight was canceled and rescheduled) so I was able to click hundreds of great shots, but in many of them the snow is falling heavily.
Hey, where have you been? I've been checking but nothing new from you in a long while.
Gary, this is an exemplary photo capture of "Aluminum Overcast"!

Great photo of a truly wonderful plane. I enjoyed my media flight in Denver a couple of years ago.
