Flying Heritage - B-17

EAA’s B-17 Aluminum Overcast is more than just an airplane. It is a living tribute to the brave individuals who served, sacrificed, and, in many cases gave up their lives defending freedom during World War II. It is a connection to the past and the Greatest Generation who built and served historically on these magnificent warbirds.

Our Join the Flight tour takes Aluminum Overcast around the United States, providing people of all backgrounds with the chance to remember and honor the men and women of WWII who either served on or worked to maintain and build this amazing aircraft.

Aluminum Overcast is just one of 12 airworthy B-17s remaining today.  

Help EAA keep this iconic aircraft flying as a tribute to those who gave to the cause of freedom, a connection to the past, and, a tribute to aviation’s pioneers.
