Chuckie B-17 Flying FortressThe B-17 Flying Fortress “Chuckie” is moving from the Vintage Flying Museum in Fort Worth, Texas to the Military Aviation Museum in Virginia Beach, Virginia. The B-17 “Chuckie” was used for cropdusting until 1979. Owned by Chuckie Hospers, the B-17 was purchased by Don Anklin for permanent display at the Military Aviation Museum. The museum plans on sending the aircraft to American Aero in Florida for restoration work after which the B-17 returns to the museum.

    I saw Chuckie at that museum a while back. Beautiful plane. (But it must have been difficult to fly as a crop duster.)
