Sad day for Aviation & World War II History

WWII B-17 "Nine-O-Nine" Crashes, multiple casualties.

I've seen this plane at airshows, and I believe I've shared the airspace over Pittsburgh with it. Very sad day. My heart goes out to the families.

I have pics of it when it was at Allegheny County Airport. Where was your pic taken?

Horrible accident with dedicated volunteers. I flew on a similar B-17 a few years ago, also with the Collings foundation.
