Christopher Fact Time!
The B-17 is awesome! It's cool and Forties and all! But wait,is it really a Forties airplane? No, the B-17 is actually a product of some of the greatest aeronautical minds of the 1930s. What!? The B-17 is that big WW2 bomber that's all bad-ass! You know, the Flying Fortress! Actually, that's partially true. I said PARTIALLY true. The most famous model, the G, was indeed a Forties model. But the first model,the Boeing Model 299 was made in 1935.That Is All.
