WWII B-17 bomber on display at small Dayton, Ohio area airport. Close up shots of all gunnery positions, engines, and a sweet sweet plane. Support the groups which preserve these machines. As to the many comments saying it WAS built by Boeing, perhaps we have a simple misunderstanding. While the plane was designed by Boeing, I think the one I was lucky enough to crawl around in may have been built by Vega/Douglas, as referenced here: “The “F” was the first B-17 variant to be produced by all of the “BVD” companies (Boeing, Lockheed/Vega, and Douglas). Because of the pressing demand for the Flying Fortress, Boeing provided blueprints and cooperation for the B-17 to be built at the Douglas plant in Long Beach and the Vega plant in Burbank. Altogether, they would turn out 3405 B-17Fs: 2300 by Boeing, 605 by Douglas, and 500 by Lockheed/Vega. The first B-17F flew in May, 1942. ” Thanks for all the great comments on the plane. . .let’s try to keep it respectful with regards to the rest. Clearly there are many atrocities committed by all governments.
