I had the chance to fly on this B17 in the early 80s when the crew took it to Harlingen. I remember passing over Austin and seeing the Capitol building through the bombsight! On the trip back to Meacham the weather set in on us and forced an overnight stay in Rockport TX after a try at climbing over the thunderstorms proved impossible. My most prized photo is a snapshot of my twins standing by the main gear under the wing when they were 4 years old. I live close to Meacham now and every time I hear those round motors going overhead it gives me a thrill and some very great memories. Keep it flying!

Sean is mistaken...a lot of the aircraft in this museum do fly. Great small working museum.

Drove up to the flight line today with my Australian visitor Tim Vickridge from Perth to see his first B-17. Chuckie was pulled out with the starter cart hooked up and being preflighted. Well we got to see her fly! Huge clouds of smoke as those great big radials each started; great takeoff using very little runway! Beech C-45 in Navy colors also flew, and a visiting pristine B-25, Pacific Prowler, was there. Total audience for this private airshow maybe under a dozen people. A woman ex-P-3 Orion ASW officer gave us a great tour and really did know some things I didn't. Don't take it for granted; this museum is WORTH VISITING, Call ahead, find out when they FLY!! It is not big but what they do have is worth a look. We have done the hanger dance several times and that is a blast...

Visited the museum today and what a spectacular visit it was. Only wished I was there Thursday to see "Chuckie" fly! This is one museum aviation buffs should not miss!!

I don't know who this 'John' is who is hiding behind no last name and wrote a negative comment on 6/05 about our B-17 and museum, but he is certainly misinformed and not very observant. We had 2 flights in May; and our maintenance is among the best in the warbird community.

This aircraft has been in the same stage for years now, horrible! Are you ever going to make this aircraft into a working example of what was flown and widely used in WWII? There are so many museums that would love to have a B-17 and actually would put the money and effort into it that it deserves. Your museum has alot of potential, but it needs better direction and alot better workers to make this work.

My wife and I went to a hanger dance in the mid 90's for the 50th anniversity of D-Day. It was a great night. Do you plan on having any more events like this, and if so, we would love to attend. Thanks John
