AmQuip Protects a Legacy
AmQuip was honored to assist in preparing "My Gal Sal" (World War II's B-17E #19032) for her final journey home to the National WW II Museum in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The restoration of "My Gal Sal" began in April 2000 after 53 years of sitting on the Greenland icecap and 5 years in a hangar at Tillamook, Oregon. With the tragic events of September 11, it brings the realization that our great country is now under attack.
"My Gal Sal" is a symbol of unity, strength and sacrifice. Sixty years ago our country came under attack. It awakened a people who had a resolve like never before in history. Today, it's a new war and a new generation. The men that flew the thousands of "My Gal Sals" left us a legacy. Now it's our turn to protect that legacy.< Back to Main News Page
