Ray Fowler, Chief Pilot of the Liberty Foundation’s B-17 and also pilot for some of the other Fighter Factory aircraft, will be in command of the aircraft on this delivery flight.

The bomber will stay at the museum for several weeks and be on display for the annual Valentine’s Day dance on Saturday, February 12th.

Chuckie will then depart shortly thereafter and undergo additional restoration work by American Aero in New Smyrma Beach, Florida, before returning permanently to the museum at the beginning of May and fly for the annual Warbirds Over the Beach airshow.
