B 17 "Sleepy Time Gal" on a bridge, heading to the museum at Dayton Ohio


found on http://mecanicien.tumblr.com

but credit for learning what a B17 was doing on a bridge goes to Bob, Vonredbeard.blogspot who somehow figured out the plane, the location, and what it was doing on the bridge! Thanks Bob!
