Recently my family and I enjoyed touring a B-17 at the Greenville Downtown Airport and visiting the adjacent Military History Center of the Carolinas (MHCC). My dad, Ray Sheen, is an Air Force veteran so military planes always interest us. We enjoy studying the 1940s time period and several of us dressed up in 1940s attire for the occasion to honor our veterans.

The B-17 on display, “Aluminum Overcast,” was one of the last B-17s produced and never actually left the United States to see combat. Its current mission is important however – it provides hands-on history for thousands of spectators who want to know about World War II aircraft.
