Posted: Updated:
POOLER, GA (WTOC) -

Runners of all ages were flying around the Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum on Saturday for the 4th Annual Flying Fortress 5k. 

Proceeds from the race benefited the museum's mission, including the restoration of the B-17 Flying Fortress "City of Savannah", and the Character Counts! education program. 

The restoration of the B-17 will be complete in December 2014. It will be restored to complete combat capacity with fully-functioning turrets.
