    Go for a B-17 ride at KYIP

    Fly because you like to, if you are in it for the respect, prestige, recognition or money you may be disappointed.

    There was a B-17 flying around the country that was selling rides. I saw it when it was in KCXY several years ago.
    Back when I was doing proficiency flying in T-28s out of El Toro in the 70s I'd see firebomber B-17s flying around the SoCal area, and they looked pretty humble. Glad to see they're getting better treatment.

    That was our B-17's life until 1985 when we purchased it.
