Default saw the inside of a B-17...

stationary in a museum, alas.

at the Evergreen Aviation Museum in McMinnville, OR (which is the new home of the Spruce Goose), for an extra three bucks you can climb inside their B-17 -- and talk to a guy that was a Fortress pilot in WWII.

wow, it's a lot smaller on the inside than the outside. surprising that it carried a crew of nine.

never fails to give me goosebumps though.
