    Does anyone know if B-17G 'Sally B' is airborne again? It had problems with its engines in past...
    Thank you.

    Thank you for a good news Gary. I only hope that the never ending story with engines failure is over now. Keep my fingers crossed.
    Were you at FL in 2008 when there were 3 Forts at once? That was amazing although Sally B was grounded.

    Update
    here´s a part of the answer I got from the owner of 'February':
    Jim (Brooks) will be there as the guest of the "Horseman" formation aerobatic team. "February" will also be there as one of the featured Mustangs in the aerobatic act. Jim is now 90 and will be flying front seat, pilot in command in a TF-51 Mustang. The ASB.tv crew will be making a movie about that flight. Should be really great!
    Jim's wish has been to fly a Mustang in his 90th year. Incredible!


    That´s why I gotta be there!

    And I don't blame you Roman ! I hope you get to meet him too. I'm thinking about going, but it depends on health nearer the date, plus available cash !
    I'll let you know if I can go nearer the time.

    Hope you all have a great time. Was looking at going, but my mate Mick, who I was going with, will have just got out of hospital after having a pace-maker fitted, so can't go. Darn !
