    look. Forward to following your progress.

  2. I’m very happy to see you are restoring the Lacey Lady! When I was 12 years old I was “flying her” atop of the Texico gas station in milwakee OR. I had a wonderful time and spent hours and hours during weekends aboard her and it was a lot of fun. If you are looking for spare parts, try the Chino airport in California where they have the “Picadilly Lilly II. I know it will cost a lot to completely restore a B-17 You should see all the restoration projects they have going on at the Chino Air Musium. Well, anyway, I hope to see the Lacey Lady in airshows sometime soon! Thanks, Steve

  3. I know the original owner flew the lacey lady from an airplane wrecking yard all the way to Troutdale airport in 1948 or 49. They almost didn’t make it! The first time I saw her was in 1954 when my dad took me inside and showed me the airplane like he used to fly in during WWII. I was 3 years old. I have lots of pics of her on my PC. Send me an email and I’ll forward them to you…
