Homecoming of Sentimental Journey at the Chico Air Museum

The Chico Air Museum is excited to officially announce the homecoming of the beautiful Boeing B-17 aircraft Sentimental Journey. The Commemorative Air Force is flying her and their North American B-25 Maid in the Shade to visit to Chico in August 12-18. Sentimental Journey was flown as a wildland fire Air Tanker 17 flown by Aero Union in Chico during the 60’s and early 70’s.
