What's New

February 3, 2009: Added two photos to Fuselage page number one, and one to the Nose page.

May 24, 2003: Added two photos of damaged B-24s to the Miscellaneous page.

June 20, 2002: THIS WEBSITE IS MOVING! I am going to a dedicated server under my domain name of "daveswarbirds.com", so the new address will be http://www.daveswarbirds.com/b-17. Please update your bookmarks. The old address will hopefully still work, but a re-direction will take the visitor to the new server. My aviation websites have become a victim of their own success, as I was getting so many visitors that my ISP was complaining about bandwidth useage, and I was forced to move to a commercial-grade server. This means that my costs for keeping my aviation websites online has suddenly increased 150%, and I was struggling to pay for them as it was. If you enjoy this site (or any of my other sites), please consider becoming a sponsor (ie. - make a donation) so that I can stay on-line. Email me for further information if you are interested.

February 12, 2002: Added a series of four photos to the tail section.

December 23, 2001: Added a visitor-submitted photo to the nose section.

August 9, 2001: Added a Resources page, listing good B-17 books and simulations. Also added a Donations page to enable visitors to give money to help pay my ISP costs, so that this website can stay online.

July 2, 2001: Added three more pics, all sent in by Paul Varn.

April 17, 2001: Added fourteen more photos, including a couple of B-24s on the Miscellaneous page.

April 5, 2001: Added a third photo of the All American to the body section.

I've exhausted my library for photos, now I'm asking all of you out there to find some good photos to add to this collection. Please contact me if you have a picture of a battle-damaged B-17 to contribute (it must be WWII, and the aircraft must have returned to base.... no photos of B-17s going down in flames, etc.). Thanks for your help!
