The Liberty Foundation will begin our 2017 Salute to Veterans tour in March. This year will mark a change in aircraft as we will now be touring the B-17 "Madras Maiden" formerly known as "Chuckie". It is painted up in the markings of the 381st Bomb Group.

This B-17, built in 1944, has never toured or been available to the public for flight experiences. We look forward to bringing this aircraft to as many cities as possible in 2017.

Take a flight in our Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress named the Madras Maiden!

Oct 28-29th San Antonio, TX
Nov 4-5th Phoenix, AZ
Nov 11-12th Reno, NV
Nov 13th Madras, OR
