Restoring a B-17 Flying Fortress back to flight for public education

The museum is restoring a B-17 Flying Fortress back to flying condition. During the restoration the public is allowed to see and learn about the building and metal shaping techniques of the 1930's and 1940's. The ultimate goal is to fly the airplane to honor our WWII veterans.
