though they began the complete restoration years ago, and won't finish for years, the Smithsonian Magazine just ran an article on the B17 over the gas station in Milwaukie Oregon

I've been posting about it since 2013. In 2015 they really got to work, and took it all apart https://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2015/03/update-on-oregon-gas-station-b-17.html


In the summer of 2013 they sent the cockpit roof and tail turret to a master craftsman repairman in Atlanta.   In the fall of 2013 the pulled the rudder and elevators.
