An Alaska TV station has been following the progress of the B-17 “Champaign Lady” restoration. It started with a report on our recovery of a B-17 in the Alaska wilderness two years ago. This summer the same TV station visited the museum in Urbana, Ohio to get an update. See their reports.

Original Report from 2 years ago:

 

Video Update from 2014

To keep an eye on Champaign Lady’s progress, please visit www.champaignaviationmuseum.org to access the video feed. Or better yet, stop by the museum at Grimes Airfield in Urbana, Ohio, Tuesday through Saturday. A volunteer would be more than happy to show you around. Seeing the activity and smiles first hand will show you why their unofficial motto is: “In our hearts, a Fortress lives; from our hands, a Fortress flies”.

 

Moreno-Aguiari

Born in Milan, Italy, Moreno moved to the U.S. in 1999 to pursue a career as a commercial pilot. His aviation passion began early, inspired by his uncle, an F-104 Starfighter Crew Chief, and his father, a military traffic controller. Childhood adventures included camping outside military bases and watching planes at Aeroporto Linate. In 1999, he relocated to Atlanta, Georgia, to obtain his commercial pilot license, a move that became permanent. With 24 years in the U.S., he now flies full-time for a Part 91 business aviation company in Atlanta. He is actively involved with the Commemorative Air Force, the D-Day Squadron, and other aviation organizations. He enjoys life with his supportive wife and three wonderful children.

  1. We keep our eye on the progress of this B-17. My father Dean Larson, who is still with us, was a ball turret gunner in the 401st, squadron 613. He just received the French Legion of honor medal at the Utah State Capitol.
