The B-17 "Aluminum Overcast" visited Lebanon, TN in 2004. I took my 1940's era Bell & Howell Filmo 16mm movie camera and shot this footage from a small hill on the other side of the runway. After the B-17 took off, it banked around to the left and I thought it was going to be gone for awhile. A few minutes later I heard the beautiful sound of those 4 radial engines and realized that they were going to buzz the field. The B-17 flew right over me on this pass. Looking throught the viewfinder, it felt like I could reach out and touch it as it went by. You can tell the excitement level was high as the camera shakes while I was filming the plane fly away. It was easily one of the most exciting shots I've ever captured on film.
