It's a nice picture craft wise, however the little puff of cloud bothers me a bit.  I would also prefer a higher aspect ratio (thinner cropping) to heighten the drama.

Ha, I actually like the cloud. I am rather fond of these little imbalances in photographs. As for the crop I understand what you are saying and you are right, a thinner crop would be more dramatic and almost film like as if it were in widescreen, however I only ever crop my photographs to the same aspect ratio of the original image. I just prefer my gallery looking neat and uniformed, I tend to be more journalistic than artistic with my photography anyway. Thanks for your input though, it's always good to get a different perspective and I appreciate your honest opinion. :)

Found out the other weekend my great uncle flew and died in one of these. He was co-pilot, but the pilot was killed during the mission. He flew plane back, but it blew up 600 feet over the airfield, probably from unexploded ordinance.

Nice early "G" . The B-17 was no sitting duck, in fact a well flown tight combat box would sometimes be bypassed by German fighters in favor of attacking a not so disciplined group. Many experten lost their lives attacking formations of "Viermots" it took a very brave man to fly through that storm of .50 caliber slugs thrown out by the gunners. The Luftwaffe had those men, just as we had the ones that would fly into the teeth of attacking Focke Wulfs and Me's and the huge thick clouds of Flak over the targets. No attacking force of American Bombers were turned back due to losses. However the losses did become so severe n the winter of "43" that unescorted deep penetration missions were discontinued until there were enough long range fighters to shepherd the bombers all the way to the target and back. When hordes of aggressive American fighter pilots were let loose over Germany the back of the Luftwaffe Day Fighter Gruppes were broken. Anyway it's a great image of a great plane, my personal favorite.
