Submitted by DaSarge

This is a Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress. Specifically, it was built as a B-17G-105-VE, U.S. Army Air Forces (USAAF) serial number 44-85718, manufacturer's serial number 17-8627, by Lockheed Vega at Burbank, California. This is one of the 2,750 B-17s built by Lockheed. It was delivered to the USAAF at Louisville, Kentucky, on 5 September 1945 and transferred to the Reconsturction Fincance Corporation (RFC)on 21 November 1945. The RFC was a government storage body formed to dispose of suplus materials until it was superceded by the War Assets Administration (WAA) in March 1946. The aircraft was operated in France and the U.K. until being restored as a B-17 of the 303d Bombardment Group (Heavy), Eighth Air Force, in 1987. Currently, it is registered N900RW to the Texas Aviation Hall of Fame in Galveston, Texas.
