Doug Beezley Photography | Liberty Belle - WW II B-17

In January 2007, the Liberty Foundation brought their aircraft, a restored WW II B-17, to Atlanta to kick off their tour year. While I had intended just to see and photograph the aircraft, my wife decided that our sons and I should take one of the flightseeing trips over Atlanta. I don't think I've ever enjoyed a flight on any airplane as much. The sound of the piston engines turning over, the smell of the oil burning, the run-up of each engine, and finally, the take-off were all exhilerating. I hope you enjoy the photos of our "bomb run" on downtown Atlanta.
