40 B17 Sally B Built as

40 B17 Sally B Built as a Boeing B-17G-105-VE c/n 8693, the future Sally B was one of the last to be constructed. Accepted by the United States Army Air Force (USAAF) in June 1945, it was too late to see war service but was used for research roles during which a man-carrying pod on the starboard wingtip was added! Later returned to standard configuration, no details have ever emerged of the trials which this aircraft was involved in. Businessman and pilot, Ted White brought her to Britain to the Imperial War Museum Duxford, in 1975, to begin a new life as Sally B, named after Ted’s long-time companion Elly Sallingboe. An engineering support group and operating base at Duxford were set up, and eventually a Supporters Club to keep her in flying condition. Sally B became the official flagship of the American Air Museum in Britain, part of the Imperial War Museum complex. Fundraising efforts and dedication of her team continue to preserve the aircraft for future generations and as a memorial to the 79,000 US airmen who died fighting in the skies over Europe between 1942 and 1945. Sally B’s role as the USAAF 8th Air Force Memorial Flight and her rarity, not only as an airworthy example, but also as the only flying B-17 in the UK, make her a very important part of aviation history.

It makes its debut at Airbourne this year The North American Aviation Rockwell OV-10 Bronco is a turboprop light attack and observation aircraft. It was developed in the 1960s for counter insurgency combat. One of its primary missions was as a forward air control aircraft in the Vietnam War. The OV-10B variant was produced for Germany to use as target tug. After a long career the Bronco was replaced by the Pilatus PC-9 in 1990 and all aircraft were retired.
