AWESOME shot!!
My father flew those out of Guam as a "Typhoon Chaser" in the late 50s. I imagine descending into the eye was quite a view also.

That could only be one aircraft. Amazing!

Sanmit Basu

American muscle.

I was a civilian contractor on Guam in the late 50s attached to the Typhoon Chasers.
The aircraft were all B50s not B17s.
Possibly after all these years the numbers got mixed up.
Best seats in the house!!
Conrad Kass
Sorry for the mixup on aircraft.
They started with 29s and then went to 50s.
Never 17s.
My age is showing.

Several years ago I flew from Amarillo to Midland in the bombadier seat of this plane. My husband was the Flight Engineer back then. Fifi's home was in Midland at the CAF's Main Hangar at the Midland/Odessa airport. I was an amazing flight!
