A piece of history is sitting at the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport.
The Mighty 8th Air Force Museum welcomed a B-17 Flying Fortress from Texas, Monday afternoon. The World War II plane is one of only 12 still flying. This particular B-17 is considered one of the most historically accurate restorations of the 70-year-old plane. It serves now as a flying museum for all to see.
"Our goal is to educate the next generation, the young generation, as to what happened in World War II and what it takes to stay a liberated country," said Ole Nygren, Commemorative Air Force.
The public is invited to visit Sheltair Aviation from now until Thursday, to tour and meet the crews of an iconic World War II B-17 bomber.
Attendees who want the ultimate warbird experience can make a reservation for a 30-minute flights on the Flying Fortress.
