The Liberty Foundations 2017 Salute to Veterans tour is coming to the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport. Public flights and tours will be available Sept. 30-Oct. 1.
On display will be the famous Boeing B-17 “Madras Maiden” celebrating 72 years since the end of WWII.
These aircraft flew from bases far from home in an attempt to bring freedom to oppressed people. The B-17's mission for today is to educate the people of America about the courageous WWII veterans, and remember those brave aircrew who never made it home.
"Madras Maiden" is a living museum, its heritage not in mothballs or the pages of a dusty book, but real life, three dimensions, here and now.
As the B-17 flies around town, its famous silhouette and unique sound will draw a great deal of attention.
