Living History: WWII vets and B17 take to the sky over Seattle

A B-17 Flying Fortress flies over Seattle, Wash., June 6, 2016. The B-17 had 13, 50-caliber M2 Browning machine guns for defense. The long range capabilities of the B-17 meant they would often go without fighter plane escorts. (U.S Air Force photo/ Tech. Sgt. Tim Chacon)
