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.
