Join us for an unforgettable experience aboard one of the few remaining airworthy B-17s in the world. You won’t want to miss Aluminum Overcast when it visits an airport near you!

Climb aboard the 65,000-lb. B-17 bomber and step back in time to the World War II era.

Feel the might of this magnificent flying machine as it soars through the sky on your mission flight where you’ll discover why it’s called the Flying Fortress.

Stand in the footsteps of the bombardier, the navigator, and the waist gunner and relive history by experiencing this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to fly in one of World War II's most vital and magnificent aircraft.

People of all ages will appreciate the history associated with this airplane that helped the Allies achieve victory. We invite families to visit and learn all about our aircraft and our organization

Revenues from the B-17 tour help cover maintenance and operations costs for the aircraft and aid our ambition to "keep 'em flying" for many years to come. Our tour stops are also hosted by volunteers who are passionate about sharing the B-17’s stories.
