They have been called the “Greatest Generation.” They are the 16 million Americans who fought in World War II and built the country we enjoy today. That legacy is quickly disappearing. Fewer than 700,000 World War II veterans are still alive; within 20 years, there will be no veterans left to tell their stories - or how the war changed the future of the world.

The B-17 Alliance Foundation was formed in 2006 to keep that legacy alive. We are restoring the B-17 Lacey Lady to airworthy condition and building a museum to bring the history of World War II to life. It’s an ambitious goal. Few B-17s remain in existence and only a handful of those are airworthy.
