“Aluminum Overcast Over Lambeau”
by Steven Lepak.
A fly-over by a WWII B-17 bomber prior to the Packer vs Vikings game on 11-24-13. The bomber has been restored by a group at the Experimental Aviation Association (EAA) in Oshkosh, WI. The restoration is painted in the colors of the 398th Bomb Group which flew hundreds of missions over Nazi Germany in WWII. The bomber has been dubbed "Aluminum Overcast".
The bomber flew at 1,000 feet and 140 mph over Lambeau just after the national anthem and prior to the 12 noon game. It is easy to see in the image that the bomb bay doors are open - reports are that passengers on board were shooting photos and video through the open doors during the fly-over. How do I sign up for that gig?
Note that the Lambeau clock is set to "Lombardi time", i.e., 15 minutes early.
The Packers and Vikings played to a 26-26 tie after one overtime under the NFLs new overtime rules.
