B-17 at WVI

Submitted by thail on Fri, 05/07/2010 - 22:05.

The B-17 Aluminum Overcast visited WVI May 3-6.  The visit started with a press flight on Monday for the local papers and KION 46 weather reporter Tamara Berg.  Click here.  The SC Sentinel story is here.  Tuesday had the first two flights for paying passengers and a couple of freebies for EAA 119 volunteers.  Afterward a lot of visitors came out to the airport to tour through the plane, EAA119 volunteers doing a great job keeping the visitors interested, educated, informed and flowing through the plane.  We all learned a lot and I think passed on a lot of information to the community what it was like in that plane.  Tony and Thad literally spent hours in the cockpit talking to folks.  (click on the title to see more...)
