A Boeing-manufactured heavy bomber introduced in April of 1938, the B-17 Flying Fortress was chiefly operated by the USAAF in the European Theater during their strategic bombing campaign over Germany. Of the 1.5 million tons of weaponry dropped on Nazi-occupied territory during World War II, 640,000 came from B-17s. More than 12,000 units were manufactured and ten remain airworthy as of 2015.
