AZCAF177.11The B-17 Sentimental Journey is one of a dozen airworthy Flying Fortresses left in the world. The historic aircraft calls the CAF's Airbase Arizona its home and is celebrating its 70th Anniversary this November.

For the CAF as an organization, it's important to showcase the aircraft and the people they represent at Air Shows, Open Houses, and other public venues where the community can take part in the experience of the aircraft flying.

Events like these offer younger generations a living, breathing, real-world lesson about these planes' contribution to history. "Unlike static museums, you can go out and see them in their natural state," says Steve Brown, CAF president. "You get the oil, the smoke, the smell. You can ride inside them and imagine."
