The B-17 Aluminum Overcast Tour has arrived at Punta Gorda Airport! The restored historic plane is at Punta Gorda Airport this weekend for public viewing at the Experimental Aircraft Association 565 chapter’s building located at the south end of the airport, 28000 A-1 Airport Road in Punta Gorda.

More than just an airplane, the B-17 is living history that holds a remarkable connection to the past and is the most iconic image of World War II.

Today, it serves as a tribute to those known as the greatest generation: the bold men and women who built and served on the heavy bombers in the 1940s.

Relive the story. Join the flight.

All the ticket proceeds support the Experimental Aircraft Association, a non-profit organization dedicated to sharing The Spirit of Aviation with everyone. Tour stops are hosted by volunteers who are passionate about sharing the B-17’s stories.

For any questions, or if you are interested in booking a full flight at a location, please contact Membership Services at 800-359-6217. Revenues from the B-17 tour help cover maintenance and operations costs for the aircraft and aid our ambition to “keep ’em flying” for many years to come.
