WWII bomber on display at Quebec airport

from Ottawa Citizen

Sentimental Journey, a 70-year-old B-17 bomber, touched down at Gatineau airport in Quebec, where aviation enthusiasts will tour the aircraft and, for $425 U.S. each, board it for 20-minute flights. The primary bomber of the U.S. air force during the Second World War, the B-17, or Flying Fortress, has a special connection with Ottawa: In 1943, the RCAF acquired six of the craft for between roughly $300,000 and $400,000 each. Stripped of their armaments, the aircraft flew out of the Rockcliffe airbase with 168 Heavy Transport Squadron, carrying mail to troops overseas. more
