Restored World War II bomber flies into Hillsboro, Oregon

The Liberty Foundation's 2013 Salute to Veterans Tour continued into Oregon this week.  A B-17F Flying Fortress flew over the Portland, OR area.


"You can't imagine the feeling you get, and of course, B-17's are like Harley Davidsons. They have a distinctive sound," said Charles Gallagher.
The aircraft will take off again in Hillsboro this weekend, Saturday and Sunday. The Memphis Belle usually flies between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. each day, with ground tours after the flights.
