WATCH: A ride in Boeing's historic B-17 Flying Fortress

SEATTLE -- Did you hear an unusually loud engine roaring over Seattle on Friday?

Q13 FOX News anchor David Rose and photojournalist Walker Anderson took a ride in a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress!

It's the same type of plane Rose's grandfather flew in World War II.

The plane is in Western Washington through the weekend, so the public can get a sense of this Boeing engineering marvel.

The Wings of Freedom Tour is at Boeing Field/King County International Airport June 20th - 22nd.

David Rose's grandfather Melvin "Mac" Mckinney is pictured. He flew the B-17 Flying Fortress in World War II.
