B-17 “Yankee Lady” Coming To Findlay Airport

A special event will be held at the Findlay Airport.

The B-17 Flying Fortress “Yankee Lady” will be at the airfield on Sunday, September 5th from 10 to 4 for paid tours and a limited number of paid rides.

The Flying Fortress was developed in the early 1930s by Boeing and was a staple in the US air forces during World War II.

More than 12-thousand were built, but only 40 survive. Yankee Lady is one of less than a dozen of the craft that are still airworthy.

Also part of the festivities will be the opportunity to see and ride in a biplane.

The event is being put on by the Yankee Air Museum.
