B-17 Flying Fortress over Shoreline Saturday

The B-17 bomber was one of three World War II bombers that the Wings of Freedom Tour was displaying at the Museum of Flight in Seattle.

The other bombers on the tour: a B-24 Liberator, a B-25 Mitchell, as well as a P-51 fighter. All were available for paid flights for aviation enthusiasts.

The B-17 was using Richmond Beach Saltwater Park as landfall point before executing a wide sweeping turn eastward.
