Item Number: DRW51006
B-17F-25 Flying Fortress, 41-24562 "Sky Wolf" 358th BS, 1944
The B-17 was a high-flying, long-range bomber that encapsulated the essence of a fortress, bristling as it did with numerous defensive machine guns. Indeed, this aircraft dropped more bombs in WWII than any other U.S. aircraft in countless raids against Germany and against Japan in the Pacific. The durability and survivability of the B-17 Flying Fortress was to take on legendary proportions, so it was unsurprisingly a favorite of its crews.
