The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress is a four-engine heavy bomber aircraft developed in the 1930s. The B-17 was primarily employed by the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) in the daylight precision strategic bombing campaign of World War II against German industrial and military targets. This specific B-17 model is painted as ""Sentimental Journey"". Her nose art features Betty Grable, the number-one pin-up girl of the World War II era. ""Sentimental Journey"" is still in flying condition and is owned by the Commemorative Air Force and is regularly flown to airshows around the country.
This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
