B-17E Flying Fortress
Planes Of Fame
Chino, CA,


B-17

B-17 Swamp Ghost on display at the Planes Of Fame Air Museum at Chino, California. The Ghost was recovered in New Guinea in 2005, but became stuck in customs when the New Guinea government decided that the permit to allow the aircraft to be exported was issued illegally. The government later allowed the Swamp Ghost to be exported after the recovery team agreed to build a museum and donate a fiberglass replica of a B-17 aircraft. The Ghost arrived in the United States in June, 2010, and later went on display in an as-recovered state.
