The "Mighty Eighth's" bomber of choice.
WWII's B-17G Fighting Fortress could take on the Luftwaffe - and win with the best of them. It's no wonder this beast of a bomber was a favorite of the Eighth Air Force! The 351st Bombardment Group and the 490th Bombardment Group were among the many divisions that used the B-17G to bomb German aircraft plants in the latter years of the war.
