B-17 Crashes

The weather here on Wednesday and Thursday was overcast/cloudy and I didn't see the Collings Foundations' B-17 or B-24 at the Aurora airport. Figuring they were delayed by weather, I was belatedly told by my neighbor today that the B-17 crashed.
The Salem News reports this B-17, owned by The Liberty Foundation, crashed in Illinois.

Apparently not the B-17G "Nine O Nine" scheduled to fly in Aurora. I will have to check tomorrow after I get off work.
We did see the Collings foundation's P-51 fly overhead earlier today. The sky's were clear today.
With rain coming in tomorrow, these big birds are scheduled to fly up to Everett, Washington next.
