Sally B has completed her 38th year of flying in the UK!

2013 was also the 70th anniversary of the USAAF’s arrival, when huge numbers of young American airmen poured into the UK as the USA joined the air war in Europe. Many of these young men would fly daylight missions in thousands of B-17 Flying Fortresses. 

More than seventy years on, Sally B is the last remaining airworthy B-17 Flying Fortress in the whole of Europe, so we are extremely fortunate to be able to hear the roar of those mighty engines and experience the immense power as she sweeps across the skies.

BUT WE DO NOT HAVE A RESERVE OF FUNDS to pay for the insurance, the fuel, the parts.

All of these costs are rising every year, and if we are to continue, we simply MUST raise the money to keep her going for another year so please don’t let this be Sally B’s last year and support our Appeal.

As a "thank you", if you contribute £35 or more you will receive an exclusive print of Sally B from a photograph by Tim Croton of specially commissioned for this Appeal. 

Give £460 or more (£395 for members) and we will add the name of your choice to The Roll of Honour on Sally B for one year. Plus, you and your guest will be invited to join us as our VIP guests at Duxford on a special day with Sally B on Sunday 17 August 2014. Here, you will also enjoy lunch in the fabulous AirSpace Suite, in the company of Sally B’s operator, pilots, and team leaders. On this special day your chosen name will be officially unveiled and Sally B will fly just for you - truly a day to remember!

We have kept Sally B flying for almost four decades. Please, don’t let this be her last year; make a donation today and keep her flying.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely

Elly Sallingboe
B-17 Operator and Chairman of the Trustees
