B-17G Flying Fortress
Yankee Air Force
Ypsilanti, MI


B-17

B-17G Yankee Lady based at the Yankee Air Force museum at the Willow Run Airport near Ypsilanti, Michigan. Yankee Lady took to the air once again in 1995 after a 9 year restoration effort by the volunteers at the YAF. This photo was taken shortly before that first flight.

Disaster struck the Yankee Air Force in the fall of 2004 when their historic main hangar and museum building burned to the ground. Thankfully, the smoke was noticed before the entire building was engulfed, and two key flyable aircraft were saved, the B-47 Yankee Doodle Dandy and this B-17. The fantastic B-25 was on assignment that day, and was also spared.
