Creating a world that draws strength and inspiration from the people's stories of WWII. Mission: B-17 Alliance will build a lasting educational and commemorative tribute to the men and women who served valiantly and made a vital contribution to the victory in World War II. Overview: The "Lacey Lady", was a surplus plane built by Lockheed at the Vega plant in Burbank California. This B-17G has the lowest air time of any B-17 in existence. She, the "Lacey Lady" has stood as an icon, since 1947, on McLoughlin Blvd to honor all those who have served. B-17’s were amazing to their crew as a "Flying Fortress" but, were not designed to be in Oregon's climate for 65 years unprotected. The condition of the "Lacey Lady" warrants immediate attention. A team of professionals have developed a plan to take this Vintage Aircraft to the next phase of her preservation. Preservation, Education and Memorization are all a part of the VISION to restore the "Lacey Lady" and fly her as an educational museum.
