Get Involved! Please Support the Liberty Foundation B-17

Liberty Belle being restored FACT: Operating costs on the B-17 have reached nearly $4,500 per flight hour.

FACT: It costs over $50,000 to replace just one engine.

FACT: The Liberty Belle’s restoration exceeded well over $3,000,000 and her restoration is ongoing.

The challenges involved in maintaining a World War II bomber in flying condition increases with each year. Now more than ever, your contributions count to keep this living history museum flying as a tribute to all the men and women who have served our country in times of need.

Insurance costs have risen greatly in recent years (particularly since September 11th) and the cost of an engine overhaul has now topped $50,000 and bear in mind that we may overhaul between one and two engines annually.

The Liberty Foundation B-17 is not supported or sustained by regular city, state or federal grants of any kind. The B-17 relies on Corporate and personal contributions to help defray the operational expense and maintenance costs. You can help!
