McMinnville has an airworthy B-17G. So, while possible, probably not.

My guess would be Tillamook.

I'm sure it's headed for the air museum there. The old blimp hanger that now houses the museum is the Worlds largest clear-span wooden structure...It' quite the site.

On one hand it is a "once in a lifetime" opportunity.

On the other hand, 14 hours plus or minus, in a B-17 may be more than a lot of people are ready for. Even if you split it into two 7 hour flights, it could be a bit much. If you are not old enough to remember long flights with radial engines, it is amazing how the noise and vibration beat on you over the hours.

I would love to do it, vibrations or not.

That is one of the most important plane in history.

Most likely, particularly if that "private owner" is Jack Erickson.
The museum will only be in Tillamook, a couple of more years. So, if someone is interested in seeing the blimp hanger from the inside, git her done.
The museum will be moving to Madras, Oregon by 2016.

I didn't know that. I knew Newport and Astoria were trying to get it. Madras is a good thing, get those gems off the Coast and away from the salt air.

Better double check with them. As far as I know, none of the 8 B17's that regularly sell rides are based in Illinois. Closest would Oshkosh, WI., if the plane isn't on tour.

I did check the tour schedule for "Aluminum Overcast", it will be in Rockford July 19-21.
