The B-17 Yankee Lady

The B-17G Yankee Lady in flight:

The B-17 dropped more bombs in World War 2 than any other US aircraft and helped win the war over Germany and against Japan.

If you were a German on the ground in the target zone and you saw this above you, you were about to have a bad day:

Leading the pack:

Of 12,731 B-17s produced, most were scrapped after the war, and only 10 B-17s remain in flying condition today.

Long may the Yankee Lady fly.
