B-17 specsMy EAA chapter ( met at Grimes Field in Urbana, Ohio today (AirNav) to see a vintage World War II Boeing B-17 G restoration project, or should I say ‘creation’ project. (many if not most parts are being manufactured onsite or locally) The project is sponsored by the Tech II Inc company and the many volunteers contributing time and money.

Jack Bailey and Dave Burdick (Project Manager) were extremely cordial, as were the volunteers working diligently on parts. The project is daunting considering the shear size of the B-17 Flying Fortress. Our admiration and appreciation go out to those devoting the tens of thousands of hours to reconstruct this part of aviation history.
