During my lunchbreak I saw a silver B-17 on final (with blue tail markings) into PAE. Any idea what for, who's it is, and why?

There is a privately owned one that tours the US with a B-24 Liberator offering walkaboards as well as paid flights. They usually visit BFI (Boeing Field). I took my pop up in them once. Was pretty cool.

This would be the Collings Foundation (they also have an F-4 Phantom, last I knew.) When I ran the airport I had them twice; it was a wonderful experience, and I had a really good time with the crews. I also was able to hitch a ride (since I was the sponsor) on the B-17 from Concord, NH to Springfield, VT-an awesome experience.

EAA's B-17, "Aluminum Overcast", is touring around, too. Saw it last week in NJ (CDW Essex County). Fun to crawl around in!

Taxiing nearby Boeing's newest commercial aircraft, was a B-17G, a flying testament to the company's long history. This particular B-17G "Sentimental Journey" (c/n 32155) was actually built under license by Douglas in Long Beach and was delivered to the USAF in March of 1945. The aircraft was later stored in Japan then converted over the course of its life for various roles, including one as a tanker.

Damm

Missed it by a week.

I was at Payne last week, went on the Boeing tour, the restoration shop and Paul Allens little collection.

I do think I remember seeing a flyer about Sentimental Journey at Pauls place.

All you needed to do was come on up to BLI (Bellingham) last Fri-Sun. They put on quite a show for not being at a show. They buzzed my place in Ferndale many many times--
And not just by the B-17 mind you-- there was a P-51, a few A/T-6s, and an AD-1 as well!!!!
Someone at the private airfield nearby must know somebody else...



Classic planes, Classic trains, and Studebakers~~ what else is there???
