There are complains from purists about the accuracy of the flying clothing used for the FE 2b in the latest remake of "Aces High".

Boeing Press Release: "The property of this aircraft that it does an uncommanded roll on passing 10,000' was not necessary to be documented. It enhances the flying experience and because it is completely automatic, pilots and passengers don't need to know about it. Furthermore, there is no evidence that it happens."

Just because this plane used to be owned by an actor from 'Star Trek', doesn't mean you have to keep saying "make it so

"Right. We just do the same thing, but at ten o'clock every night in line astern. The plan is to see how many idiots think that we are the Starlink satellites".

The mid-lower turret gunner on the replica B-17 is surprised to find that he has neither a turret nor a gun. And he's not real impressed by the lack of a seat, either...
