The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress is an American four-engine heavy bomber aircraft. The B-17 was primarily involved in the daylight precision strategic bombing campaign of World War II against German industrial targets. The B-17 helped secure air superiority in Western Europe in preparation for Operation Overlord. It epitomized its flying fortress accolade: a high-flying, long-ranging potent bomber capable of defending itself.
