B-17 Fact Sheet B-17 History Sheet Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress’
Owner: EAA
History: The Boeing B-17 “Flying Fortress” is a World War II bomber used primarily in Europe, flew countless missions from bases in England. These missions often lasted for more than eight hours and struck at targets deep within enemy territory. Because of their long-range capability, formations of B-17s often flew into battle with no fighter escort, relying on their own defensive capabilities to insure a successful mission.
‘Bell CH-146 Griffon’
Owner: Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF)
History: The Bell CH-146 Griffon is the Canadian military variant of the Bell 412EP, a multi-use utility helicopter. The CH-146 is used in a wide variety of roles, including aerial firepower, reconnaissance, search and rescue and aero-mobility tasks.
‘Beechcraft-Raytheon Harvard II’
Owner: Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF)
History: The CT-156 Harvard II is used for pilot instruction in the NATO Flight Training in Canada (NFTC). NFTC’s Harvard II aircraft are almost identical in cockpit layout and performance to the American T-6A is used by the United States Air Force for basic pilot training and by the United States Navy for Primary and Intermediate training. It has replaced the Air Force’s T-37B Tweet and is replacing the Navy’s T-34C Turbo Mentor.
‘Learjet 25′
Owner:
History: The Lear 25 offers an ideal high speed platform for business travel for six to eight passengers. The aircraft’s high rate of climb enables it to pass congested flight levels quickly. The Learjet 25 is capable of overflying most weather systems and congested airspace, with a cruising speed of Mach 0.76 (540mph).
‘T-37 Tweet’
Owner: Jim Allen
History: The Cessna T-37 Tweet is a small, economical twin-engine jet trainer-attack type aircraft which was a primary pilot training vehicle for over 52 years. 1,269 Cessna T-37s were built, with 419 still serving in the United States Air Force in 2006. The T-37A was very noisy, even by the standards of a jet aircraft. The jet emitted a high-pitched piercing whistle inspiring the name: “Tweety Bird”, or just “Tweet”.
Beechccraft T-34 Mentor Beechcraft T-34 “Mentor”
Owner: Greg and Carl Schwerman
History: The T-34 Mentor is the brainchild of Walter Beech, who developed it as the Beechcraft Model 45 private venture at a time when there was no defense budget for a new trainer model. Beech hoped to sell it as an economical alternative to the North American T-6 Texan, then in use by all U.S. military services.
Beechcraft C-90B ‘King Air’
The C90B entered production in 1992, with airframe improvements, four-bladed propellers, and propeller synchrophasing, all in an effort to reduce cabin noise compared to prior models. This model also had PT6A-21s; the first production C90B was fitted with the 10,000th PT6 engine delivered to Beechcraft. A total of 456 C90Bs and C90SEs were delivered by the time production of these models ended in late 2005.
