The only European airworthy Flying Fortress. Officially called 'Sally B' she appeared in the film Memphis Belle hence the logo that appears on this side of the awesome war bird. Based in the UK at the Imperial War Museum Duxford.
The operational "Thunderbird". She is beautifully restored to look like Thunderbird (BN-U) which flew 112 bombing missions from Molesworth, England for the Bomb Group. - Photo taken at Houston - Ellington Field (AFB) (EFD) in Texas, USA on October

Perhaps most famous for its Eighth Air Force raids on Germany and occupied territories, the B-17 was legendary for its ability to take punishment and return with its crew. Over 12,700 of Boeing's long-range bombers were built by men and women in U.S. factories by the end of the war.
