Dang. I want a pair of goggles like that.

The aircraft in the background doesn't look like a B17, more like a P51.

Great shot.

T-6 Texan.

But the one departing is a B-17.

Sounds right, the P51 had a more teardrop/point rear canopy.

I think I had a friend who repairs T-6's out of Van Nuys airport. Took my brother up for a ride (bummed I didnt get to go!)
