Bournemouth Air Festival 2017 - B-17 Flying Fortress & Bristol Blenheim
Bournemouth Air Festival 2017 - B-17 Flying Fortress & Bristol Blenheim
Two iconic aircraft of the Second World War, both incredibly unique. 'Sally B' is the last airworthy B-17 Flying Fortress in Europe, and always seems to make her appearance, I can't recall a time when she has failed to deliver her scheduled display at Bournemouth due to technical difficulties. A tribute to the dedicated team who look after her. Making its first ever appearance this year at Bournemouth is another iconic aircraft of the same era, the MkI Bristol Blenheim is the very last one flying in the world. Built in 1939 it was the first aircraft to fly over Germany following the declaration of war. When WWII began, the RAF had more Blenheims in service than any other aircraft.
