Wisconsin Aviation hosted the EAA WWII B17 aircraft “Aluminum Overcast” the weekend of July 22nd. The B17 sells rides in order to support the aircraft. Four WWII veterans showed up for a ride. They had not been on a B17 since the war! Was amazing to be able to give them a ride at no cost. That is why it is so important to support this amazing restored aircraft. Rides to the general public were $475 per seat. 100 seats were purchased! Way to go Madison!!!
Wisconsin Aviation, also provided helicopter rides that weekend. Over 200 rides were given in a fully restored Bell 47 M*A*S*H helicopter.
That evening we had a big band hangar dance. Just like back during WWII. We had record attendance.
What a weekend at the Dane County Regional Airport. Thank you Madison for all the support. Was so good to see all the folks that came out to their airport!
