The Yankee Air Force Museum, like many museums nationwide, is on a mission to save and restore as many vintage aircraft as they can. The crew of the B-17 Yankee Lady tours with the aircraft annually to airshows nationwide. Led by Crew Chief Norm Ellickson, The Yankee Lady crew does what they do to, "Remind the public these birds existed, and still do. We fly them and sell rides to remind people about our history." (2004)
