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."
Taken while I was walking back from the DRAGON BOAT RACES of the 5th July 2013 in Bayfront Park in Hamilton, Ontario I captured it. As this B-17 was above me, and was up for a special fund-raiser of the Canadian Warplanes Heritage "Canada's Flying Museum" during the weekend 5TH to 7TH July 2013 and this B-17 is based out of Arizona.
