Diane's got some cool pictures of her flight in a B-17. Tell me that looking down over suburbia from that bombardier's seat doesn't make ya think...

Think of rounding up thousands of 18 to 21 year old males, get them in physical shape so they feel invincible, and them give them fancy new toys like B-17's, machine guns and side arms and tell them to go! Must have felt like a giant playground - until the shooting started coming back the other way but in some ways it must have been the adventure of a life time.
