Is the Evergreen Aviation B17 still airworthy?
I remember seeing this aircraft flying at Evergreen Aviation in 1998. She looked beautiful all polished up and sitting out in the sun.

I believe it's been sold to the Collings Foundation in Massachusetts where it will be inspected and returned to airworthiness.

It is airworthy. I know nothing of it being sold.

This is where I read the news. It's been sold along with the P-38.

Well that is a problem. I am very disappointed to see it leave Oregon.
