Multiple dead after WWII B-17 plane crashes in Hartford, CT

Wow, that's a drag... :( Sad to see a little bit of history gone not to mention the fatalities.

One of those flew over my house about 10 years ago with a few fighters escorting it. And it was LOW and easy to make out that it was a B-17. That 4-engine rumble was very easy to hear and I heard it before the planes appeared.

Last I heard they had one engine fail and were returning to the airport. 7 fatalities, 10 injured, 3 critically.

Yeah, I read about this on another forum the morning it happened.

Very tragic. Not just for the loss of life which is paramount above all else, but also the loss of history. I don't know if there is another flying anywhere in the world.
