(La Porte, IN) - In a summer that hasn't seen much in the way of public events, a very welcome attraction has been the B-17 bomber that's been on display at La Porte's Municipal Airport.
Diane Schwarz, Airport Operations Manager, estimates several hundred people have toured the plane in the past few days. She says the plane has been giving rides in the morning, and tours run from about 2:00 to 6:00. It's on display today and tomorrow.
The bomber, nicknamed "Sentimental Journey," is one of only five B-17s regularly flying to this day. It came to La Porte this week all the way from Mesa, AZ.
