The Mighty 8th Air Force Museum is preserving the legacy of the Greatest Generation in part through a restoration project of a B-17 bomber.
On Tuesday, the “B-17 Flying Fortress City of Savannah” received a power boost from a California company. Chroma Systems Solutions donated equipment with a price tag of more than $15,000.
The bomber will be restored to its full combat configuration, and it will be the only static displya to include three movable turrets.
The aircraft will be used in the museum’s educational programs.
