The next two years (1978) found CAF wing members scrounging junkyards and airfields in search of elusive original parts. Seattle-based Boeing Aerospace provided photos and engineering drawings to make the B-17G restoration as authentic as possible. Boeing even helped install a new nose turret, the first major piece of equipment of the restoration. By 1986, "Sentimental Journey" was an air show favorite, making more than 60 appearances across the U.S. and Canada.
