The B-17 Aluminum Overcast is returning to Morristown after a popular inaugural engagement last year.
Lakeway Area residents are invited to relive that story on a historic flight aboard the Experimental Aircraft Association’s restored B-17 Flying Fortress, Aluminum Overcast on Nov. 1-3 at the Morristown Regional Airport.
More than just an airplane, the B-17 is living history that holds a remarkable connection to the past.
Today, it serves as a tribute to those known as the greatest generation: the men and women who built and served on the heavy bombers in the 1940s.
