Inside this Illinois Barn, a Guy is Restoring a B-17 WW2 Bomber
If you are fortunate enough to get to peek inside of a certain barn in Marengo, Illinois, you'll notice there's a big project underway. A guy has spent years working on restoring a World War 2-era B-17 Bomber inside.
This is a restoration of a real B-17E Bomber known as the Desert Rat. It's something you really need to see to believe.
There's another twist to this story. This is a project you can be a part of if you're able and willing. There's an official B-17E Desert Rat Restoration Project Facebook page that's documenting the project and the process. Word is they're accepting volunteers and donations to keep the project going.
In its heyday, the B-17 Flying Fortress was devastating to enemy forces.
This restoration project in a Marengo, Illinois barn is fascinating. The goal is to get this massive beast of a plane back to factory condition. Make sure you follow the official project Facebook page for updates and new information. It should be quite a site to see once it's finally complete.
