B-17 Aluminum Overcast Tour June 4th - 6th 2021

The B-17G has a remarkable story. One filled with daring missions and personal sacrifice. You're now invited to relive that story on a historic flight aboard the EAA's beautifully restored B-17 Flying Fortress, Aluminum Overcast. More than just an airplane, the B-17 is living history that holds a remarkable connection to the past and is the most iconic image of World War II. Today, it serves as a tribute to those known as the greatest generation: the bold men and women who built and served on the heavy bombers in the 1940s. Relive the story. Join the flight.
