The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress was the primary bomber used by the American Air Force against Nazi Germany.

Sentimental Journey displays the markings of the 457th Bomb Group in their remembrance. It is maintained and operated as a flying museum and veterans' memorial by the all-volunteer, nonprofit Commemorative Air Force. Built during 1943, it was donated to the Arizona Wing in 1978, restored to full military specification, and has been touring North America since the early 1980s.

A flight starts at $425 per person. For flight reservations, call (602) 448-9415 or email b17rc@azcaf.org. Cockpit tours are $5; ground viewing and photo opportunities are free to the visiting public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
