B-17 Aluminum Overcast: History Comes Alive!

Honor the legacy of "The Greatest Generation" with a flight on the beautifully restored B-17G Flying Fortress Aluminum Overcast.

This aircraft is an example of the American heavy bomber that helped turn the tide of battle in World War II. Fly a mission back in time and feel the might of this magnificent aircraft, just as those brave young men did more than 60 years ago.


Flights depart from Appleton International Airport (ATW), with shuttles departing the AirVenture grounds. Passengers need to report ready to depart the check-in point by the B-17 trailer on the AirVenture grounds no later than one hour before their scheduled flight to be shuttled to Appleton.

Due to seat limitations, only B-17 passengers will be shuttled to Appleton.

Tickets are available for purchase online (below), by calling 800-359-6217, and the week of AirVenture at the B-17 trailer located in the Warbirds area North of taxiway P1. 

(Check in 1 hour prior to flight time at the B17 trailer located in Warbirds, North of P1)
