The Boeing B-17F "Flying Fortress" AFA-317th Chapter Aircraft

"It has served, unlike any other bomber, through all of the Second World War. It had become a legend in its time. A tribute to the men who had conceived, designed, and built it-and a monument to the remarkable young men, most of them boys who flew it. These men, and this plane, accomplished one of the most frightening missions ever demanded of men and aircraft. Together they helped end history's last "Glorious War".

Homestead Air Reserve Base 6th November 2009: In a joint effort elements of the Air Force Association, Miami, 317th Chapter linked up with members from the Homestead Chapter, the 385th in support of the "Wings Over Homestead Airshow 2009". Battling high winds and strong gust the members from both Chapters braved the elements to assist in the setting up of their AFA V.I.P tent. Special thanks and appreciation are rendered onto Mr. Mario Galiego of Miami based Flight Power Management a strong and established AFA-317th supporter who graciously donated the 20 x 30 foot tent and settings, consisting of tables and chairs. Flight Power Management are a stellar example of strong, positive and contributing AFA Community Partners.
Already, the AFA-317th is looking forward to the 2010 airshow and promise to provide yet a larger support for our Troops at next year show. (Click-On any picture within this article to enlarge)
