    Wish I were closer, I'd like to help.... Good luck with the restore, it would
    be great to another B-17 air-worthy.

    My favorite all-time airplane. Hopefully it will end up where it belongs.....in the air.

    I'm always glad to see another Fortress get restored, even if it doesn't take to the air again. (Although that IS preferable!)

    It's one of those designs that "looked right" from the beginning.

    Good news!

    A little off topic but does anyone know the current status to CAF's Texas Raider? My father drove by the hanger and it is AWOL.
