D6505. B17G Flying Fortress over The Solent.
D6505. I need some help with this one. The commentator on the trip boat I was on said that it was a Lancaster but I knew that this was not correct. However, I am not really into aeroplanes so don’t know what it is other than that it is American. Can anyone identify it for me?
It's a B17G Boeing Flying Fortress 'Sally B', currently based at Duxford. Thanks to ‘Lady Wulfrun’ and ‘Spamcan81’ for letting me know.
It was seen flying over The Solent between Lymington and the Isle of Wight during the Bournemouth Air Show.
