B-17 Flying Fortress, Vol. 1 by Schiffer Publishing

Description

Fulfilled by our friends at Schiffer Publishing

The B-17 Flying Fortress is one of the most iconic aircraft in aviation history. Through a broad range of photos gathered from around the world, this book, the first of a two-volume series, chronicles the design, development, and wartime use of the early models of the Flying Fortress, from the ill-fated experimental model 299 through the B-17D, including the famous "Swoose." These early models are distinguished by their narrow fuselage, art deco styling, and a small, "shark fin" tail. A second volume will continue the B-17 story with the large-tail later models, B-17E through B-17H. The story of these iconic WWII aircraft is told through carefully researched photos, many of which have never before been published, and which are reproduced in remarkable clarity. Large, clear photos, coupled with descriptive and informative captions, unlock the secrets of this aircraft.[AuthorName]By David Doyle[/AuthorName][AuthorBio]The aircraft books by David Doyle, author of over 125 books, are noted for their thorough coverage of historic warplanes and his celebrated ability to locate rare vintage imagery.[/AuthorBio][NumIllustration]158 color and b/w photos[/NumIllustration][CoAuthor][/CoAuthor][SubTitle]Boeing’s Model 299 through B-17D in World War II[/SubTitle][ColorPattern]158 color and b/w photos[/ColorPattern]
