This absolutely stunning B-17 Flying Fortress, called the “Aluminum Overcast”, is touring the Midwest and East Coast giving both flight and ground tours. I’ve been in a B-17 a few times at air shows, but I’ve never flown in one. Unfortunately, the Aluminum Overcast doesn’t appear to be touring further west than Milwaukee or Springfield.
12,000 Flying Fortresses were maunufactured between 1935 and 1945. Of those 12,000, 5000 were destroyed in combat. Today 100 remain and only 13 of those still fly.
