WWII B-17 Bomber Coming To Rochester
Would you like to see a B-17 World War II bomber up close? EAA, The Experimental Aircraft Association, is bringing a B-17 Aluminum Overcast to Rochester, MN this Thursday!
The B-17 Flying Fortress is a World War II bomber that was used primarily in Europe. Because of their long-range capability, they were known for flying into battle with no fighter escort relying on their own defensive capabilities to ensure a successful mission. After the war, most were cut up for scrap, used for Air Force research or sold in the surplus market. With less than 15 B-17’s still airworthy, this is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
Date: Thursday, August 14
Time: 1 p.m. Please arrive by 12:30 p.m.
Place: Rochester International Airport (RST) Rochester, MN
