The B-17 is an amazing aircraft, a four-engine heavy bomber developed in the 30’s for the U.S. Army Air Corps. It was built with radial engines. Once you hear them you will not forget them!

The B-17 was also called the Flying Fortress and build by Boeing. There are only 47 of the planes remaining in complete form, 11 of which are airworthy.

For Father’s day a few years ago my kids purchased me a ride on the B-17 and it was a great experience!
