"Flying Fortress" to visit Lehigh Valley
"Aluminum Overcast," the experimental aircraft association's restored B-17 bomber, will descend upon Lehigh Valley International Airport in Allentown on Aug. 16 and 17. This is one of 70 tour stops scheduled for the aircraft during the EAA's 2011 Salute to Veterans national tour.
During the two-day event, visitors can learn about the history of the "Flying Fortress" and this type of aircraft, used during the World War II era; as well as take part in a unique opportunity, a flight in the bomber.
