Hoadie,

You are right.

My unc!e was in the 101 RAF.


With respect No6 Group was an RCAF formation not an RAF one. It was attached to Bomber Command. By 1945 it is true that 25% of all bomber crews were RCAF so flying in a RAF formation was common. There were RCAF manned squadrons in other RAF groups as there were RAAF and NZ as well as Free French and Polish. Not being a smarta$$ just trying to get it historically correct.

she is a beautiful sight , i do love seeing all these old bombers still flying , i am inclined to think the largest payloads were the B29s but i admit to not knowing for certain , and since ya-all are talking european theater equipment ill not dwell on it , 

my father was also in bombers , this was a fun read and great photos ,

The Confederate Air Force out here at Falcon Field has a B-17G and for roughly $450.00 you can go for a 45 minute flight
