50th Anniversary
Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress 1935-1985

This book covers the history of the B-17's development, armament, markings and variants in text and photographs. Created on the 50th Anniversary of the birth of this famous bomber, this book is an excellent general reference.

Appendixes cover B-17 specifications and performance, serial numbers and civil registered Flying Fortresses. The book's center section contains sixteen fine art paintings of B-17s in operations, and a pull out 3d cutaway artist's rendering. The title of this book is alternately listed as "Boeing B-17: 50th Anniversary Flying Fortress, 1935-1985"
