    B17 Crash kills 7

    Maybe it's time to retire all of these old warbirds?

    Terrible shame. Heard something about a crash but I was hoping it was a successful ditch kind of episode

    ... or perhaps retiring all cars would be more efficient?

    If oranges kill more than apples, then before thinking of removing all apples, one may consider removing all oranges.
    Just a matter of logic...

    As an anthropologist I can assure you that logic and human bevaviour are two quite different things ...

    Pilot had 7000+ hours on Nine-o-Nine.
    https://www.spokesman.com/stories/20...d-spokane-amo/

    Definitely landed short after initially reporting 1 engine out and requesting RTB (No,4)
    NTSB brief from yesterday after 1st look



    By rights a B-17 should comfortably fly anywhere with 1 engine out, so clearly more needs to be understood about the accident.

    re the Collings Foundation, taken before it was known there were fatalities.


    RIP, very sad loss of life, something went very wrong here.

    Correct fuel on board it seems. This was a discussion point on some other forums.
