2010-Apr-29 : B-17 'Aluminum Overcast' at Hayward

The B-17 stop in Hayward was a big success! The weather was great and the crew touring with the B-17 wants to come back to Hayward next year. We started with 36 pre-booked flights and sold an additional 20 on site for a total of 56 seats. Not as good as last year, but the whole tour has been down due to the economy. The ground tours and merchandise sales went quite well.

Many thanks to the volunteers from Chapter 29 and 20, especially those who were there for the duration.
