That B17 flew low and slow over my head two days ago, what a beauty it was and it sounded awesome. I saw it flying at 11:45 today as I drove through the area. Tragic.

When I heard and saw it, instantly I paused my day as It made me reflect on my grandpa who was a navigator in WW2 in a B17.

Yep. My Dad was an instructor. Sad. No news on how many souls on board both.

Judging by the video I doubt anyone survived, may they RIP.

That's an amazing and shocking pic - to see props spinning and the carnage knowing people are/will die. It's like in a movie when someone is shot and about to pass. So tragic
those guys in the B17 were pulling on that yoke and nothing....

Didn't know if they were operating under a waiver with ADS-B turned off for the airshow.
I've seen commentary videos that have ADS-B track overlays for all participating aircraft.
