The most effective, devastating and romanticized aircraft of WWII was the B-17. Countless books and movies dramatize the Flying Fortress and the 10-men crews that flew them. Here is a chance to take a rare flight in the plane that ruled the skies.
Even though there are less than 20 B-17s still flying, the plane was, for many, the symbol of World War II. It played a critical role in the Allies’ strategy in Europe, dropping more bombs than any other other U.S. aircraft in the war. During the war, everyone from Clark Gable to Tom Landry to Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry flew missions in the B-17.
