What is 48-3514 ???
The simple answer is they are call letters of this "Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress."
"The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress is a four-engine heavy bomber aircraft developed in the 1930s for the United States Army Air Corps. Competing against Douglas and Martin for a contract to build 200 bombers, the Boeing entry outperformed both competitors and more than met the Air Corps' expectations. Although Boeing lost the contract because the prototype crashed, the Air Corps was so impressed with Boeing's design that they ordered 13 more B-17s for further evaluation. From its introduction in 1938, the B-17 Flying Fortress evolved through numerous design advances."

You do have a very big dust spot on you sensor. A decent shot, technically OK, although I'm not sure it's pin sharp, but that could be my tablet. The angle on the aircraft is not ideal. Slightly approaching and a bank towards the camera rather than away shows the lines better.

I know the spinning prop argument, but I might have gone f8 and 1/800.
