Default B-17 Crew weight

I had the oppurtunity to fly in Fuddy Duddy during a tour stop our EAA chapter hosted last summer. On its way out to the next tourstop we were able to fly with the crew from Kalamazoo, MI to Valaparsio, In., a 45 minute flight.

Another piece of B-17 info. The total crew (10) weight is 1200 lbs. max. I think you would find it hard to get 10 guys (maybe gals) that weigh 120 lbs. more or less today.
