The Boeing B-17, nicknamed the “Flying Fortress”, is a four-engine heavy bomber aircraft developed in the 1930’s for the United States Air Force. From its introduction in 1938, the B-17 Flying Fortress evolved through numerous design advances. The B-17 was primarily employed by the U.S.A.F. and was given the task of destroying enemy war facilities through precision strategic bombardment during World War II. The Flying Fortress quickly proved to be a strategic weapon for the U.S. as a potent, high-flying, long-range bomber that was able to not only defend itself but also return home regardless of substantial damage. The B-17 secured itself as an effective weapons system by dropping more bombs than any other U.S. aircraft throughout WWII.
As of September 2012, only 10 airframes remain flyable! Our award winning B-17G “Yankee Lady” is the finest example of this type of aircraft still flying in the world today. Take a step back in history as you learn more about this magnificent aircraft or better yet, book your ride now to personally experience a treasured piece of history!
