"B-17 Flying Fortress Restoration" weaves lively narrative and first-person accounts to capture the restoration of a World War II-vintage Boeing B-17 bomber, from the airplane's arrival in pieces on the back of several tractor-trailers, through months of cleaning accumulated crud from the airplane's surfaces, and years of painstaking restoration of its aluminum skin, its operating systems, armament and even its nose art.
