USAAF Boeing B-17G Aircraft Aviation Birthday Card

 

Originally designed in 1934 as the Model 299, the B-17 has become one of the symbolic aircraft of the American forces in Britain during WWII. With up to thirteen machine guns and with a heavy, rugged construction, its service name of Flying Fortress was well earned.

 

The aircraft in this Aviation Art Birthday card is a B-17G, identified by the chin turret on the nose. These aircraft would serve in Europe with distinction, often bringing their crews back safely with severe battle damage.
