B-17 France 1 by WS-Clave B-17 France 1 by WS-Clave
The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress entered service in 1938 with the USAAC, it was a four-engined heavy bomber which evolved rapidly during WW2.

The early versions of the Fortress were not effective, but rapid development of the 'E' 'F' and 'G' models made a huge difference to the durability of the aircraft and it became renowned for it's ability to take heavy battle damage.

The Fortress was armed with up 13 x 12.7mm machine guns (B-17G) and carried a 8,000 lb bomb load as standard for short range missions.

This example is a B-17F modified for transport of the Free French Air Force 1945.
