As a company with a rich history of manufacturing parts for both the civil and military aerospace industries, we can’t help getting excited when we see rare aircraft in the sky!

Last weekend, our production control manager, Martin Woodnett, captured this footage of the last airworthy B-17 Flying Fortress in the UK, as it was flying over Hoylake on route to the Southport Air Show.



What a fantastic sight!

The B-17 Flying Fortress known as Sally B is a regular at air shows and commemorative events. She has even graced the silver screen!

When not in the air, Sally B is on static display at the Imperial War Museum Duxford in Cambridgeshire.
