B-17 Tour Stop in September is canceled

Our September 21-23  B-17, Aluminum Overcast, Tour has been canceled

Due to an engine failure with no fresh or spare engines available to get the B-17 back in the air right away, the EAA has had to cancel a number of tour stops, ours being one of them.

Our greatest apologies.

We do expect to have another chance about the same time next year to host a tour stop

We will still have a YOUNG EAGLES RALLY that weekend, on Saturday, September 22, in conjunction with the Civil Air Patrol Open House.

Children ages 8 to 17 will receive an opportunity to experience the enjoyment of flight. This free airplane ride will last approximately 20 minutes.

Registration is 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Flights start around 9:00 and will continue until the last registered child has had a flight as weather conditions permit.

The rally will stage to the right of the main terminal building; parking is located in the airport parking lot.

Food is available at the Hangar Cafe, upstairs in the terminal building.

For questions or more information, call 802-259-3749 or e-mail
