The Liberty Foundations 2018 Salute to Veterans tour will be arriving in Buffalo at the Buffalo International Airport ( Prior Aviation FBO, 50 North Airport Drive) on Monday, August 20th 2018 at 11am for media opportunities.

On display will be the famous Boeing B-17 “Madras Maiden” celebrating seventy three years since the end of WWII.

We are offering up to two (2) seats for your news organization to participate in the Monday media flight. During the press flight you are only in a seat for takeoff and landing and can visit the cockpit glass nose and all the crew positions to get a feel for what the B-17 was like.

The day’s media flight is closed to the general public and only available to pre-scheduled media as seats are limited. We will also have a few local WWII B-17 veterans out to fly with you on the press flights and available for interviews.

As our B-17 fly’s around town this weekend, its famous silhouette and unique sound will draw a great deal of attention.  It is only through the news coverage and reporting from our media patrons that allow people to know where to come out to see and experience this ultimate history lesson.

It is only through your efforts and the public’s support that we can continue to keep the B-17 on tour and from being permanently silenced to sit in a museum.
