“We have asked the EAA which owns and operates the B-17 and to bring the airplane in on a very historic date: D-Day, the sixth of June, the date of the Allied invasion of Europe in WWII,” said Squadron Commander Ron Morrell. “The airplane will be conducting several flights a day on the weekend of June 10th through the 12th for people to experience the sensations of a trip back in time. Afterward, the plane will be open to the public for ground tours.”
“Now is a good time to start thinking about what can be a really exciting start to summer,” Morrell said. “Anyone interested in flying on this magnificent historic aircraft can find details on the EAA website (click here). This is also the place to pre-book a flight at the best price instead of waiting until the airplane arrives.”
