Aircraft

Planes of Fame Air Museum's B-17 was built by Douglas Aircraft and entered service too late to see combat. It served in a few training units, was placed in storage, and then placed back in service as a drone controller. When it was finally retired from military service, it had the distinction of being the last B-17 on active duty.

Following military service, Piccadilly Lilly II lay dormant until being revived as a movie star. It appeared in The Thousand Plane Raid, Fort Apache, and Black Sheep Squadron. It is best known for its role as 'Piccadilly Lilly' on the television series Twelve O'clock High. 

The museum is currently restoring its B-17G to flying status.  Proceeds from the sale of this item will help fund this project.
