about

The arrival of the WWII B-17 bomber at the National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force in January of 2009 ini-tiated a great adventure for a group of warbird lovers from the nearby commu-nities as they united to restore that B-17. The dream of the volunteers was to honor the WWII veterans of the Eighth Air Force – some of whom were literally their fathers – by restoring the B-17 to its original pristine condition. The group was challenged by the fact that the airplane had been in storage for more than two decades following a long working life, and was far from the gleaming symbol of power that it had been in 1945. This book is the story of the six year effort by a team of volunteers to over-come the challenges they faced and to fulfill their dream to create a lasting sym-bol to honor their fathers and grandfa-thers and all of the veterans who served in the Mighty Eighth during WWII.
