B-17 Aluminum Overcast T-shirt
$25.00 - $29.00
B-17G Aluminum Overcast
is featured in Kimberleigh and Paul Gavin’s B-17 Flying Fortress T-shirt design
along with high flying B-17 formations leaving contrails in the icy, brilliantly
colored cloudy skies. This dark grey heather t-shirt portrays the aircraft’s
bombing mission and the long hours of beauty and serenity that were suddenly
shattered by short but fierce intervals of attacking fighters and deadly flak.
It also illustrates what is meant by the name “Aluminum Overcast” as sometimes
there would be so many they would block out the sun. This hand drawn
14-color screen printed design uses the curvaceous nose art figure as the front
logo and also displays some of the B-17’s different versions and capabilities.
The shirt is a tribute to the aircraft, its builders and maintainers, its
pilots and crews and also to the men and women of the EAA who keep these
memories alive by ensuring the "Aluminum Overcast”, one of the few still
airworthy B-17’s, continues to fly.
