Restored 1945 B-17 Bomber visits Punta Gorda

History in the making is happening in Punta Gorda on Thursday.

The Aluminum Overcast, a restored B-17 Bomber from world war two, will be making a pit stop in the area. It’s one of only a few that are still taking regular flights.

Most of the B-17 models were scrapped for pieces, less than 100 full frames still exist.

The B-17 Bomber is 76 years old. It was originally delivered to the Army air corps in 1945.

“It is a museum piece,” pilot Niel Morrison said.

Built originally to drop bombs in Europe, the was made for 10 crew members. It would be stacked with machine guns and bombs for Nazi controlled territory.

Now it’s a flying museum that is touring all over the country.

This plane has more than a million miles of memories over the last 76 years.
