From the EAA:

B-17 Aluminum Overcast Tour
The B-17G has a remarkable story. One filled with daring missions and personal sacrifice.

You’re now invited to relive that story on a historic flight aboard the EAA’s beautifully restored B-17 Flying Fortress, Aluminum Overcast.

More than just an airplane, the B-17 is living history that holds a remarkable connection to the past and is the most iconic image of World World II.

Today, it serves as a tribute to those known as the greatest generation: the bold men and women who built and served on the heavy bombers in the 1940s.

Relive the story. Join the flight.

We graciously thank Tempest for helping to keep the B-17 flying. All the ticket proceeds support the Experimental Aircraft Association, a non-profit organization dedicated to sharing The Spirit of Aviation with everyone. Our tour stops are hosted by volunteers who are passionate about sharing the B-17’s stories.

For any questions, or if you are interested in booking a full flight at a location, please contact Membership Services at 800-359-6217.
