Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress (N3193G)


Yankee Air Museum's B-17G "Yankee Lady" (serial number 44-85829) doing an "injured" photo pass at Thunder Over Michigan 2018. She is wearing the markings of the 381st Bomb Group, 534th Bomb Squadron, based at RAF Ridgewell. My father, Richard Fisher, was a bomb loader in this unit from late 1943 to May 1945. This aircraft did not fly combat missions during World War II, as it was delivered to the USAAF on July 16, 1945 - too late for combat.

When I see this aeroplanes, my thoughts goes to WW2 and the fear the crew experienced.

Beautiful picture,my respect goes to the people who are trying to keep these "heroes" airborne.

Someone specifically decided to paint the starboard engines olive drab (or forgot to paint the port engines). Or, these engines are replacements and painting was not a priority. Or was the paint scheme specified for the group. Anyone know?

As a mentor once told me, one idiot can ask more questions than 20 professors can answer.
Meet the idiot....

The engines surfaces visible from the cockpit are painted flat olive drab, to minimize glare for the pilot/copilot

"Fear" indeed: "In a single 376 plane raid in August 1943, 60 B-17s were shot down. That was a 16 percent loss rate and meant 600 empty bunks in England..."
