By the time production of the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress ended in May 1945, 12,731 had been built by Boeing, Douglas, and Lockheed subsidiary Vega Aircraft. Of those fewer than 50 remain… Only about dozen are still airworthy.
I’ve photographed two of them the Nine-O-Nine and the Aluminum Overcast. The Aluminum Overcast is owned by Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) and has been touring the United States since 1994 I caught up with her onAugust 19 & 20, 2008 at the Waterbury-Oxford Airport in Oxford, Connecticut.
