Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress


Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress American Aircraft Pencil Drawing by artist Graham Henderson GAvA


Following on from the company's successful Boeing 247 airliner and the experimental XB-15, the B-17 first flew in 1935 and now holds a status among aircraft that few have achieved.


Gradually improved throughout its production life, the 'Flying Fort' gained the tail gunners position, ball-turret and the large dorsal fin with the E-model aircraft.


The subject of Graham Henderson's Aviation Art Print is the G-model with enclosed waist gunners positions and the chin turret. Many G-model aircraft remained in the natural metal that they left the factory, merely gaining squadron and crew markings.
