B-17G Flying Fortress
Hill Aerospace Museum
Ogden, UT


B-17

B-17G on display at the Hill Aerospace in Ogden, Utah. The museum is on the grounds of Hill Air Force Base, but is open to the public without having to get a visitors pass or enter the base. Short Bier was delivered to the US Army Air Force a little too late to serve in WWII. She went directly into storage, and then was sold to the Air Force in Brazil in the early 1950's. The aircraft came back to the US in 1968, where it circulated through a number of museums. It was eventually purchased by a private party and donated to the museum. Outside restoration was finished in 1991, but work continues on restoring the interior of the aircraft.
