B-17 Rides -- CANCELLED

OWING TO UNEXPECTED MECHANICAL DIFFICULTIES, THE B-17 ALUMINUM OVERCAST HAS BEEN FORCED TO CANCEL HER APPEARANCE. SCHEDULED RIDERS WILL BE CONTACTED ASAP REGARDING RESCHEDULING OR REFUNDS. Lunken Airport Days will still be held this weekend, and we encourage you to come out anyway and enjoy the other planes and aviation personnel who will be in attendance. But for those of you hoping or planning to see or ride on the B-17, we are deeply sorry that it will not be possible at this time. 

Ride in a B-17 bomber!

The Cincinnati Warbirds will be hosting the B-17 "Aluminum Overcast" at Lunken Airport, 262 Wilmer Avenue in Cincinnati, OH August 31st through September 3rd, 2018 from 10 am to 6 pm each day. The objectives of the B-17 display are to honor the veterans whose sacrifices paid for our freedom, and to preserve this part of our heritage by keeping these warbirds flying. Ground tours will be available each afternoon for a modest donation (WWII veterans FREE). Local 20-25 rides are available each morning for a tax deductible donation. (Visit the EAA website for current pricing) Your donation will support the continuing operation of this airplane so that future generations can share this experience.

To reserve a seat in advance (highly recommended), contact the EAA. Indicate the date you prefer RIDE in a B-17 bomber Aug 31 - Sept 3, 2018 at Cincinnati's Lunken Airport
