12 Planes of Christmas Fundraising Campaign - Airplane 9 - CAF Gulf Coast Wing's B-17 Texas Raiders​ - The CAF Gulf Coast Wing has been maintaining and flying the airplane since 1972. An aircraft as large as a B-17 requires persistent work to ensure it remains airworthy. The wing has led several major restorations of the airplane, one from 1983 to 1986 and another restoration in 2009, which addressed the FAA Airworthiness Directive to replace the main wing spar.Donate at https://goo.gl/ID86Mb ~ #12Planes #Supportcaf #B17FlyingFortress

Had the opportunity to ride in a B17 Bomber today with my son @iphone_railfanner. What a cool experience and lifetime memory we made today. And to have my son hang out with a bunch of veterans who flew in these during their active duty was a great way for him to understand the sacrifices the men and woman of our armed forces have for their country. All around it was a super cool day. #thankavet #nectarfam #oregonsonly #b17flyingfortress

Vernon "Bo" Sigo, 92, sits in the radio room of a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress during a flight from Marathon, Fla. to the Naples Municipal Airport in East Naples on Thursday, February 2, 2017. This was the first time Sigo stepped foot on a B-17 since he came home from war on October 4, 1945. Sigo was a navigator in the 49th bomb squadron in the second bomb group.

Still a "Sport" at 96 years of age. I have never met a better human being than my father. He has always spoken so highly of the people that he has met throughout his lifetime. I can only remember him speaking in unflattering words about one salesman who worked with him at a large printing firm in the 50's-60's, this was justified as the guy was ripping off the company....basically, he was a total horse's ass. #seniors #theworldgreatestgeneration #armyaircorps #b17flyingfortress #thurleigh #wwii #fightinbitin369th #nursinghome
