B-17G 44-85828 I’ll Be Around

Just a few sample pics of the B-17G 44-85828 I’ll Be Around from my personal archives documenting the B-17s I have had the good fortune to see in person. This fine Fortress is kept out of the hot Arizona sun, safely displayed in the 390th BG’s special museum within the Pima Air Museum in Tucson. We were lucky to visit on one of the few days that 390th BG veteran Richard Bushong was on site sharing his experiences during WWII and after. By the time he retired as a full Colonel, Bushong had type ratings for 46 different planes and helicopters.
