Product Details

By New Year's Day 1942, 11 B-17s flew to a new base at Malang in Java. Their main target then was Japanese shipping. These B-17s were reinforced in January 1942 by some LB-30 Liberators and some new B-17Es of the 7th Bomb Group.

Designed to meet a US Army Air Corps requirement for a multi-engined bomber to replace the B-10, the B-17 first flew on July 18, 1935. Best known for its role in the US Army Air Forces' daylight strategic bombing campaign during World War II, the B-17 could fly high and had a long range, and was capable of defending itself from enemy fighters. It was also tough, withstanding extensive battle damage, and was capable of carrying a 6,000 lb bombload. The B-17 became one of the symbols of Allied air power, equipping 32 overseas combat groups and dropping a total of 580,631 metric tons of bombs on European targets.
