Epilogue for 2014:
In 2013 I was able to attend 12 different aviation events, which is the fewest I have ever done for a season since I started this webpage in 2007.  But among the dozen events were nine new shows, airport open houses or B-17 tour stops.  Six of the events were in the state of Indiana and in 2014 there were three stops during the year by touring B-17s that I was able to attend in the state.

Also in 2014 I added one more military base to my goal of seeing an airshow at all of the Military Air Bases and Stations in the US.
That was Thunder over the Valley at the Youngstown Air Reserve Station in Ohio.

There are many excellent websites available that have air show photos available.  However, my research has shown that there are no other websites that are dedicated to purely focusing on all of the warbirds at an aerial event, as others will include civilian aerobatic and military aircraft or don't do warbirds at all.  This site documents all of the warbirds that attend a show, fly-in, or open house with photos of each.  This includes not only the bombers and fighters that normally get photographed, but the liaisons, trainers and transports also.

Enthusiasm for the B-17 spans generations as granddaughter and grandfather, among others, watch B-17G "Aluminum Overcast" taxi out for its flying portion at the Spirit of St. Louis Airshow in Chesterfield, MO.
