(CLEVELAND) A piece of history will fly into Cleveland's Burke Lakefront at 11:00 a.m. Monday morning, a B-17 from World War II.
"The B-17 was the workhorse of World War Two," says Scott Maher of the Liberty Foundation, sponsoring the fifty city tour. "Out of the 12,731 that were built, there are only ten flying worldwide and only four that the public can fly in."
Maher says preserving World War II is important because he estimates 1500 WWII vets die every day
The plane is open to the public Saturday and Sunday, June 23rd and 24th. Tours are free and there will be memorabilia and veterans on hand. Flights in the plane cost $495.
