The death-defying heroic pilots and crew of the legendary B-17 Flying Fortress and their fighter escorts will be honored on October 17 and 18 at Fantasy of Flight. The “Fearless Men of the B-17 Flying Fortress” event is part of Fantasy of Flight’s popular Living History Symposium Series.
The B-17 Flying Fortress played a vital role in the bombardment of Germany upon the entry of the U.S. into World War II. As many as 1,000 B-17 aircraft were staged and deployed during this time.
During Fantasy of Flight’s “Fearless Men of the B-17 Flying Fortress” event, an extraordinary group of real heroes will share memories of their daring days with the Flying Fortress. There will also be an open-forum/question and answer session.
Guests that are scheduled to appear include:
