EAA is offering historic flight experiences in its beautifully restored B-17G Flying Fortress “Aluminum Overcast,” one of only 13 Fortress's still flying. Unlike reading a history book, you can actually fly a mission back in time and feel the might of this magnificent machine.

A veteran returning from war can experience a multitude of challenges. War Comes Home offers a look into the thoughts and emotions of veterans and their families upon their homecoming. The exhibit tells their stories through private correspondence from nearly every major military conflict in U.S. history, including photos by local author and photographer Steve Burchik. These intimate perspectives reveal how war can deeply affect lives, loved ones, and communities.
