If you check out the video you can see that many of the shots are taken from inside. Although since it is an old submerged wrecked airplane, really the line between "inside" and outside" is kind of skewed. It's all outside now! :smiley2:

Wonderful video. As I watched, I wondered about the crew that was in her on her final flight. It's too bad the nose didn't survive; perhaps then you could see the nose art and identify the plane itself.

Great video! The plane seems to be in pretty good shape after a crash and so long in a busy area...

I did a bit of google-age, and I think it's this one:

second lieutenant Franck G. Chaplick's B-17 (http://www.aero-relic.org/English/B-17_42-31044_Chaplick/e-00-b17chaplick.htm)
