John mcGeoghan - I believe there is one (1) example of a B-17 showing in the U.K. Civil registry... &quot;G-BEDF&quot;, which is a B-17G model.<br /><br />From the U.K. Civil Aviation Authority website:<br /><br /><a rel="nofollow" href="http://publicapps.caa.co.uk/modalapplication.aspx?catid=1&amp;pagetype=65&amp;appid=1&amp;mode=detailnosummary&amp;fullregmark=BEDF">http://publicapps.caa.co.uk/modalapplication.aspx?catid=1&amp;pagetype=65&amp;appid=1&amp;mode=detailnosummary&amp;fullregmark=BEDF</a><br /><br /><a rel="nofollow" href="http://publicapps.caa.co.uk/modalapplication.aspx?catid=1&amp;pagetype=65&amp;appid=1&amp;mode=reg&amp;fullregmark=BEDF">http://publicapps.caa.co.uk/modalapplication.aspx?catid=1&amp;pagetype=65&amp;appid=1&amp;mode=reg&amp;fullregmark=BEDF</a><br /><br />It was originally assigned USAAF s/n 44-85784, as a Lockheed-Vega built B-17G-105-VE with c/n 8693, according to Joe Baugher's published information.<br /><br />Mr. Baugher further provides this additional history:<br /><br />&quot;B-17G built by Lockheed-Vega Airplane Company as part of pooled production... converted to EB-17G and to ETB-17G. Sold to Institut Geographique National of France as F-BGSR. Sold to American users as N17TE but never taken to USA. Moved to Britain and re-registered as G-BEDF. Currently flying as *Sally B* with B-17 Preservation Ltd of Duxford with false tail number 124485 (Memphis Belle). Used in remake of film *Memphis Belle*&quot;.

Thank you very much Cliffe l.learned very much from your posts..<br />Who would have thought the only B17 in U.K. is owned by David Gold!<br />Fair play.
cliff731
John, you're very welcome and thanks for the kind words. David Gold is certainly one of only a few who can lay claim to ownership of a B-17!

I Love It!
