Mr. Thompson: You are Now Free to Fly About the Country!

I passed my Private Pilot FAA checkride this afternoon! My final landing at KAUS was behind a B-17 Bomber from WWII. ATC's conversation went like this, "Cessna 51A you are number two for landing behind a B-17 bomber do you have the traffic in sight?" My answer was, "Cessna 51A has the big bomber in sight".

This particular B-17 has an interesting history that you can read about here.
