How You Can Help

Following a series of disastrous engine problems and massive increases in the operating costs, the devastating Covid-19 crisis arrived and with it the temporary grounding of our beloved B-17.

This terrible situation now threatens the future of Sally B more than ever before. No work, no income - your help is again absolutely vital if we are to get through this unprecedented horrific crisis. This means that our funds have diminished to the point where more money is urgently needed if we are to continue.

She urgently needs your help to ensure her future in this country.

There are many ways you can help Sally B:
