Re: Collings B-17 Crash

Nothing official yet. Putting together some non-official info:

The plane had just taken off when the pilot reported a problem with the number 4 engine and he requested clearance to return to the the field. They returned and tried to land on runway 6. As it touched down, the airplane “impacted the instrument landing system stanchions, veered to the right, over a grassy area, over the taxiway and impacted the de-icing facility."
