Our speaker for the PSAM Mini-Reunion museum day on February 9, 2019 will be Greg Stathatos , B-17 Archaeology founder. Greg has devoted himself to doing in-depth studies on remaining B-17’s, starting when his eldest son was two years old and asked him “what did that plane do”. This began his long journey into the legendary B-17 and how it got its nickname “Flying Fortress”. Greg’s passion for the B-17 has led him to study them extensively and interview the airmen who served on them. He has many fascinating stories to share about the survival and rescue of these aircraft and has been an important part of many of their restorations. B-17 Archaeology started off just telling the stories of the surviving B-17’s, but has turned into so much more. Greg has made so many friends who share his passion and have a love for the B-17 and her role in a world in conflict. Today there are 51 B-17’s left in the world out of the 12,731 that were built. Please join us in hearing his passionate stories about the famous “Flying Fortress” on February 9, 2019 at the Palm Springs Air Museum.
