 Don has spent the last 6 months building this magnificent B17 Flying Fortress. 

At time of publication, this plane had 27 flights and a total of 3 1/2 hours in the air.

Don lives locally to the RCV headquarters, so we had the pleasure of seeing this fly for ourselves.  Click here for the video footage


 

The photo left shows the modified carburettor which Don made.  These were needed as the retractable undercarriage took up the space of the original carb.
