Great fun last night, WWII event at Comerica Park, home of the Detroit Tigers, we got FAA clearance to fly the B-17 into the TFR and fly over during the start of the game, did it with one smoking. We did it with numner 2 smoke on. Made me think of when I was at a Tiger's game about 25 years and a Bard Air LJ bussed the old Tiger Stadium without anyone's premission, he lost his licence, then got it back and killed himself in an airplane over in New England. BTW On the way back to KYIP, DTW tower said they also wanted a fly-by so we gave them a 300' pass.

Bussed?

B-17s being used as public transportation now in the greater Detroit area?

Maybe "buzzed" would be a more correct word in your title.

"...We did it with numner 2 smoke on..."

Now that's funny. LMAO

.....if Randy would have opened the bomb bay doors at the beginning of the run!

Where's Slim Pickins when you need him?!
