B-17 Bomber In Lincoln

If you live in the Lincoln area, you may have seen a piece of history in the sky.

It's nicknamed “Aluminum Overcast” a B-17 Bomber manufactured in 1945.

However, the plane never saw any action, because World War II was over by the time it was delivered to the U.S. Army.

A tour coordinator says the B-17 is a great learning tool for young people.

Public ground tours of the plane run Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon at Silverhawk Aviation in Lincoln. Tours cost $5 and a flight in the Bomber costs $425.
