A piece of American history is resting this Labor Day Weekend in Zanesville. Friday the B-17 Bomber grounded at the Zanesville Airport for display, tours, and even rides to the public. "The Flying Fortress" as it is fondly called, carries a crew of eight men from city to city. The plane is in the air for eight months out of the year. Tours are available to the public, as well as 45-minute rides. Cost for each person in $400. Some say the amount is worth it, in order to experience the historical value up close. The B-17 flew daylight bombing raids over Europe during World War Two. The plane will be at the airport through this holiday weekend and on Monday, but will leave by Tuesday for a stay in Dayton.
