VIDEO: Sentimental Journey Flies Springfield


A refurbished World War II B-17 Bomber plane is in town and available for tours and flights throughout this week.

 

The plane that was originally built nearly 70 years ago was barely used before the end of the war.

 

Named The Sentimental Journey, it was then used to battle wild fires and also as a coast guard plane.

 

Eventually Commemorative Air Force out of Arizona purchased the plan and brought it back to it's original purpose as a B-17.

 

The Sentimental Journey will be in Springfield at the Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport throughout most of this week.

 

Tours and flights are available by calling Landmark Aviation at the airport.
