The B-17 Alliance Foundation is very excited to announce that the Madras, Oregon based Erickson Aircraft Collections’ WWII P-40e Kittyhawk and SBD Dauntless will headline the 5th Annual B-17 Alliance Foundation Fly-In Fundraiser. The Erickson Aircraft Collection (formerly located at the historic Tillamook Air Museum in Tillamook, Oregon) based in Madras, Oregon displays a vintage WWII aircraft collection started by Jack Erickson in 1983. The collection features over twenty plus warbirds, most of which are still in flying condition. **Flying schedules will be published prior to the Annual Fly-In.**
Also featured at the 5th Annual Fly-In will Ragwood Refactory owner Kyle Bushman’s 1943 Navy N3N “Old Glory” & Bryan Harper’s 1943 T-6 Texan Aircraft (Harper Family Farms). Selected in 2017 from over 800 rally applicants Kyle & Bryan are among the rare pilots of the 15 competing rally teams in the Vintage Air Rally Race Ushuaia2USA scheduled for November 2018 spanning South America. 15 Teams, 44 days, 9200 miles – the Rally is on! The Fly-In will be the last public viewing of “Old Glory” prior to departing to South America in mid-August 2018.
The B-17 Alliance Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to the people of WWII, all our veterans and the restoration of the “Lacey Lady”, a B-17G Flying Fortress that served as a service station canopy in Milwaukie, Oregon for over 67 years. The “Lacey Lady” is now undergoing full restoration to flying condition at the Alliance’s Museum & Restoration Hangar in Salem, Oregon.
