WWII B17G Flying Fortress "Aluminum Overcast"
Welcome back to the sky "Aluminum Overcast". Love seeing you gracing the skies over San Francisco. "Aluminum Overcast" is a Boeing Flying Fortress with the colors of the 398th Bombardment Group (USAAF), which flew hundreds of bombing missions during WWII. "Aluminum Overcast" commemorates B-17G #42-102516, shot down August 13, 1944 during its 34th combat mission over Le Manior, France. Decades later 398th BG Veterans played a significant role in helping finance the bomber's restoration
