The Vintage Flying Museum in Fort Worth, Texas, said good-bye last month to Chuckie, its beloved B-17 Flying Fortress. The World War II airplane arrived in Virginia to a rousing welcome at its new home, Jerry Yagen’s Military Aviation Museum at Virginia Beach. Chuckie is the only airworthy B-17 Pathfinder in existence. Even though it never saw combat, it was originally equipped with an H2X Mickey radar unit in place of a ball turret and was intended to lead bombing missions.
