Go back to the shadows, flame of Curtis Lamay

Srlsy.  Major geek points for clicking the link, but you'll understand it when you read it.  Would that Peter Jackson had that sort of subtlety.

Yet another movie I really need to watch again.

I knew it was a B-17 the second I saw it (my favorite WWII aircraft), but couldn't figure out how the sun angle could change the profile. Until I read the comments. :)

Funny, I was just thinking of tracking down that movie yesterday. Someone had a good eye -- someone keyed on a subconscious level to the shape of the B-17.

Looks as though a B-17 was used to shoot the footage.

I'll have to check my copy (copies?) of the DVD to see if the mentioned short is included. Could be this one, though I didn't spot the B-17 during a quick sort-of-viewing while at work.

This really spun up my stats counter.

Thanks for the link!
