EAA, The Experimental Aircraft Association, is bringing our B-17 Aluminum Overcast to Lincoln, NE!
The B-17 Flying Fortress is a World War II bomber used primarily in Europe. Because of their long-range capability, they were known for flying into battle with no fighter escort relying on their own defensive capabilities to ensure a successful mission. After the war, most were cut up for scrap, used for Air Force research or sold in the surplus market. With less than 15 B-17’s still airworthy, this is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
Date: Thursday, June 12th
Time: 1 p.m. Please arrive by 12:30 p.m.
Place: Lincoln Airport
Public flights: June 13th – 15th 10:00 AM, 11:00 AM, 12:00 PM, and 1:00 PM
