your pics are so crisp and clean, fantastic job. I always wondered why that B-17 had only 1 engine cowling painted like thathttp://www.sallyb.org.uk/index.php?_a=viewDoc&docId=11
Of course, Elly was completely devastated by Ted’s death, and it’s hard to imagine how anyone could carry on in the wake of such a tragic loss. But somehow, Elly and her team bravely pulled themselves together to hold the show and to dedicate themselves to the continued flying of Sally B, as Ted would have wished. For Elly, the Great Warbirds Air Display would be a spectacular and fitting tribute to Ted White. His dream of a massed Harvard formation would still take place, but with his lead position unfilled. For all time, Sally B’s starboard inner cowling will carry the same black and yellow chequered markings as Ted’s Harvard.
I like that personal touch on the aircraft. Though I must admit I'm not in favor at all on the Memphis Belle markings, especially on a G. The Tallichet example is different in my opinion since its been essentially back dated to an F and really looks the part. I don't have a problem with Sally B being in the MB markings, but I wished they only kept this scheme for a few years and then tried something new. Or something old... http://www.airliners.net/photo/Boeing-B-17G-Flying/1261376/L/
