Rumbling Overhead and Onto My Phone


EUROPEAN SUMMERS BRING the rumble and whoosh of airshows to every place I've lived except southwest Germany. And with those spectacular events come a flow of images I enjoy on the home screen of my Lumia phone.

I think the big four engine bomber included in this blog post came complements of James Clay. My planespotting skills aren't good enough to identify the aircraft but I'm certain a few of my flying buddies are sharp enough to identify the make and vintage of this specific aluminum overcast. It doesn't have the vertical stabilisers of a Lancaster bomber but I can't make out the USAAF markings to determine if it's a Boeing B-17.
