Sunday May 11th was interesting not only for a complex of thunderstorms to lift through the area before dawn but additional afternoon activity would create the perfect backdrop during a visit to Lake Decatur. While there, a particular severe warned cell over Shelby county complete with daytime moon would have been fine on its own but the experience took an exciting turn when a vintage B17 flying out of Decatur appeared on the horizon. It would pass almost directly overhead, bank west, loop to the south, curve back north and then make another appearance before landing. To pair the "Flying Fortress" against an angry mass of boiling cumulonimbus clouds ranks as one my favorite shots yet.
