The Sally B Appeal

Please support The Sally B Appeal

Together, against the odds, we have managed to achieve one of aviation’s most outstanding feats, keeping this irreplaceable living piece of history in the air for Forty-two years. I cannot express how grateful we are for your continued support of you, our members, friends and sponsors.

Our epic odyssey continues and thanks to your support I am delighted to tell you that Sally B has just completed her FORTY-THIRD SEASON!

But, now more than ever, your support is truly vital and will help ensure that Sally B can continue to perform her emotional mission; honouring those young servicemen of the USAAF who made the ultimate sacrifice in WWII.

The costs in both time and money of keeping Sally B in the air have grown ever greater and are now truly staggering. Spare Parts have become a huge issue, over the last two years alone, the costs have increased by a shocking 300%! And, this winter we must replace Engine Number Three, known as ‘Smokey Joe’ with our only spare engine. This means that we will need to source another, a very costly exercise.

Therefore, please keep supporting the Sally B Appeal as we face the challenges of this next twelve months.

As a "thank you", if you contribute £35 or more you will receive an exclusive print of Sally B from a photograph by Aviation ‘PhotoCrew Belgium’ specially commissioned for this Appeal. 

Give £395 or more (£460 for non members) and we will add the name of your choice to The Roll of Honour on Sally B for one year. Plus, you and your guest will be invited to join us as our VIP guests at Duxford on Sunday 11 August 2019. Here, you will also enjoy lunch in the AirSpace Suite, in the company of Sally B’s operator, pilots, and team leaders. On this special day your chosen name will be officially unveiled and Sally B will fly just for you - truly a day to remember!
