The Liberty Foundation will begin our 2018 Salute to Veterans tour at the end of March. We will be touring the United States with the B-17 "Madras Maiden" formerly known as "Chuckie". It is painted up in the markings of the 381st Bomb Group.

This B-17, built in 1944, has never toured or been available to the public for flight experiences. We look forward to bringing this aircraft to as many cities as possible in 2018.

Take a flight in our Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress named the Madras Maiden!
