The B-17 bomber known as the Yankee Lady has been restored to flying condition thanks to the efforts of a team of volunteers. The plane was built in 1944 and saw action in the European Theater during World War II. It was later used for training and research purposes before being retired from service in 1959. The Yankee Lady was then donated to the Smithsonian Institution and put on display at the National Air and Space Museum. In 2003, a group of volunteers began working to restore the plane to flying condition. The restoration was completed in 2010, and the Yankee Lady took to the skies again. The plane is now operated by the Yankee Air Museum in Michigan.
