Glimpse history with the “Greatest Generation”

Fred Parker, a veteran who worked on B-17s during WWII, smiles aboard Aluminum Overcast, a B-17 built in 1945, prior to taking off, May 10, 2017 at the Olympic Flight Museum in Tumwater, Wash. B-17s dropped more than 640,000 tons of bombs on European targets and downed more enemy aircraft per thousand raids than any other aircraft in the United States’ arsenal, making it the champion of the American aerial campaign during WWII.
