June 20, 2013 - As EAA's B-17 Aluminum Overcastcontinues its tour around the United States, Signature Flight Support is making the experience even more affordable and available by offering fuel discounts, crew accommodations, and parking fees for the airplane for a number of the B-17's stops.
The national tour honors World War II veterans and makes more than 50 stops nationally each year. Signature Flight Support is providing its services for the B-17's stops in Denver, three Florida locations, and Green Bay.
"As we take Aluminum Overcast to many airports across the country each year, Signature's services to EAA and our B-17 are especially welcomed and appreciated," said Sean Elliott, EAA's vice president of advocacy and safety, who oversees the B-17 tour operations. "We want to make this piece of flying heritage available to as many people as possible throughout the nation, and this support by Signature makes that more possible."
The tour includes flight experiences, ground tours, and a new interpretive display that explains what the aircraft's mission was during the war. For a complete tour schedule as well as more information on the B-17 and Aluminum Overcast, visit www.B17.org.
