The restored World War II-era B-17G Flying Fortress bomber “Sentimental Journey” has landed at DeKalb Taylor Municipal Airport, where it will be on public display through Sunday.
It is free to view the exterior of the plane on the tarmac at the airport, 3232 Pleasant St., DeKalb. Tours of the inside are $5 for adults, $3 for children older than 5, and those younger than 5 are free. A ticket to fly on the plane costs $425. Flights can be scheduled by calling 602-448-9415.
After the war, the plane was used to fight forest fires in the western United States. Its operator, the Commemorative Air Force’s Arizona Wing, has restored the aircraft to the way it would have been equipped for combat missions during the war.
