For the B-17 fans, there is a new movie coming out on the B-17, it uses a lot of original film shot in 1943 and it is a big budget deal put together by the guy who did Pirates of Caribbean etc.

It will be on HBO but apparently there will be a one night screening on May 23rd at AMC theaters. Right now there is not much info out there which is strange sense thats a week away.

Movie is called The Cold Blue.

There's a group called Wings of Freedom that offers B-17 flights. I was very interested until I found out it was $450 for a half hour flight. I suppose that's reasonable but just seemed a little excessive to me. I guess it'll have to remain a dream for now.

Probably just going to keep going up in price as fewer and fewer of the old birds keep flying. Two P51's have been lost over Texas in the past few years.

HBO is supposedly doing another Hanks/Spielberg collaboration ala Band of Brothers & The Pacific with the latest one being about the air war over Europe. I'm starting to think it might have got shelved because I've been hearing about it for years and still nothing has materialized except a trailer, and I'm not even sure it's official.

After I wrote the above I went looking and found this. http://footstepsresearch.org/2018/12/what-we-know-hbos-masters-of-the-a…

Apparently it is going to happen!

I had a B-29 Superfortress fly over me on a back highway in South Central Kansas a couple of months ago. Was flying real low, the sound was pretty sweet!
