B-17 Yankee Lady Makes Fuel Stop in Perryville on Flight to Bell Fort Worth Alliance Airshow

By Fred Harl
The Boeing B-17G Yankee Lady made a fuel stop at Perryville Regional Airport Thursday on a flight to this weekend's Bell Fort Worth Alliance Airshow. The public was invited to view the aircraft on the apron, and local news carried the story. Warbirds like the Yankee Lady attract attention when they make even a brief appearance at a local airport, and they provide an opportunity for visitors to see first-hand what the Greatest Generation flew during World War II. The Aero Experience thanks the flight crew and airport service personnel for providing this look at the legendary Flying Fortress.
