B-17G Flying Fortress 'Seattle Sue' Giclée Art Print
High quality art print of a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, an American heavy bomber known for its role in the World War Two. Produced from 1936, more than 12,000 Flying Fortress bombers were built; the B-17G variant depicted in this illustration made up the majority of these, with 8,680 built from August 1943 onwards.
The B-17 Flying Fortress was primarily operated by the United States Army Air Force (USAAF), in particular the Eighth Air Force flying from Britain, and the Fifteenth Air Force operating out of Italy. It served a key role in the strategic bombing of Germany from 1943, and in the invasion of France in 1944.
This B-17 Flying Fortress art print depicts 'Seattle Sue,' a B-17G flown by the 525th Bomb Squadron, of the 37th Bomb Group USAAF, from 1944 to 1945. Seattle Sue flew in Europe in the closing stages of World War Two, and crashed over Pilsen, Czechoslovakia in April 1945.
