EAA B-17 Tour

EAA Aluminum Overcast In Flight

Time: Thursday, May 23, 2013 - 10:00am - Monday, May 27, 2013 - 5:00pm

Event Type: Special Events

Location: North Lawn

The Seattle-born Boeing B-17 bomber played an important role in World War II and aviation history. For several days in May, the Museum will be the proud host of the Experimental Aircraft Association’s popular B-17, Aluminum Overcast. Delivered to the U.S. Army Air Corps in May 1945, Aluminum Overcast was too late to see action in World War II. Sold for $750 as military surplus, the airplane served as a cargo hauler, an aerial mapping platform and in pest control. Now, Aluminum Overcast carries the wartime colors of the 398th Bomb Group, serving as a living tribute to World War II aviation.

Museum visitors can tour, or even fly aboard this historic aircraft. For costs, reservations and more information, please call the EAA at 1-800-359-6217 or visit www.b17.org.
