As the saying goes: a picture is worth a thousand words.....but BEING there is priceless. Got a ride in Aluminum Overcast this last summer in Oshkosh. It's one thing to cruise over Wisconsin on a warm summer day. Sealed windows and fairly comfy. I can only imagine what it must've been like in December,with OPEN waist gunner ports at 30,000 and have people shooting at you.

Those brave souls had some GRANDE CAJONES!!

It is tragic when anything goes down, be it an ultralight, racing plane or a commercial flight. But the experience of flight far out-weighs the risk. Blue skies to those lost on 909.
