The "Aluminum Overcast," which is operated by the Experimental
Aircraft Association, will be on display at the Lincoln Airport on
July 12 and 13.
The Boeing B-17 "Flying Fortress" was one of the most
well-known and important bombers used during World War II.
While Boeing manufactured nearly 13,000 B-17s, nearly all of
them were scrapped or sold to private buyers after the war.
Now fewer than 100 B-17 airframes currently exist and fewer than 15 can still fly.
Organizers are asking $439 for a 20-minute flight if booked in
advance or $465 on the day of the flight.
