SAN Photographer Jerry Pickard was taking shots of the Shoreline Arts Festival on Sunday, June 26, when he heard a familiar rumble overhead and captured these photos of a World War II bomber doing a fly-by.

He would have been more surprised if he hadn't known that the Museum of Flight was doing some preparation leading up to their event "Heroes of the Homefront: A Celebration of the B-17" on Saturday, July 16, 2011.

Jerry says that this plane is a Consolidated B-24-J Liberator, used almost as heavily as the B-17 Flying Fortresses in the European Theater of operations during WWII.
