Sentimental Journey Comes to Bismarck

Posted: Updated:

 One of the last flying WWII B-17 bombers is landing in Bismarck. Sentimental Journey will be on display and available for rides at the Bismarck Airport over Labor Day weekend.

Maintained and operated as a flying museum and veterans' memorial by the all-volunteer non-profit Commemorative Air Force, the heavy bomber was used for military reconnaissance and acted as a drone mother ship during nuclear testing.

The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress was the primary bomber used by the American Air Force against Nazi Germany. Of the 12,731 B-17s originally built, less than ten remain in flying condition.

Sentimental Journey proudly displays the markings of the 457th Bomb Group in their remembrance. The aircraft lends its name from a popular Doris Day song, and Betty Grable, the number-one pin-up girl of the World War II era, graces the nose of the plane.
