Aluminum Overcast Visits Seattle Memorial Weekend


The B-17 “Aluminum Overcast” will be available for flights in Seattle May 25 – 30, 2011


B-17 tour stop hosted by: Cascade Warbirds   www.eaa.org  www.cascadewarbirds.org

Location:  Museum of Flight ramp, Boeing Field (King County Airport)

The Experimental Aircraft Association is offering historic flight experiences in the beautifully restored B-17G Flying Fortress “Aluminum Overcast.” One of only 14 Fortress’s still flying, this aircraft is an icon of the Allied strategic bombing effort that helped turn the tide of battle in World War II. Unlike reading a history book, you can actually fly a mission back in time and feel the might of this magnificent machine, just as those brave young men did many years ago.   To book a B-17 flight please call 1-800-359-6217

Pre-book – for EAA members $399, for non-members $439

Mark your calendar On Saturday May 28th the Cascade Warbirds will join the B-17 with a number of other vintage warbirds owned and operated by local members.    For more information about the Cascade Warbirds and aircraft photos see: www.cascadewarbirds.org For Museum of Flight information and location see:  www.museumofflight.org
