The Boeing B-17 flying Fortress is a four engine heavy bomber, long range plane developed in the United States by the Boeing airplane Company. Being one of the most famous and successful planes that helped the allies during the Second World War.

The planes were primarily used in carpet bombing missions. The B-17 dropped more bombs than any other U.S. Aircraft in WWII. The Boeing B-17, also called the 'flying Fortress', was heavily armored and included a weapons system on board an aircraft. In addition to its role as a Bomber, it was also employed as a transport, antisubmarine aircraft, drone controller, and search-and-rescue aircraft. Boeing plant 2 Built a total of 6,981 B-17s in various models, and another 5,745 were built under a collaborative effort by Douglas And Lockheed. Only a few B-17s survive today, featured at museums and air shows; most were scrapped at the end of the war.
