Photos of B17 Bomber and Links
Pictures of a B17 Bomber and B24 that recently visited the Barnstable Municipal Airport in Hyannis, Ma. ..September 2002.

Family Photos are included in the pictures-I think they add a personal touch, considering my father is in a few photos and he was a tail gunner with the 384th on a B17 in WWll!

Vintage Aircraft Nose Art (Motorbooks Classic)

Here is an unprecedented collection of the unique art that graced military aircraft in World War II and the Korean War.

Applied by amateurs or professional artists like Vargas and Brinkman, the art typically featured alluring women whose charms belied the deadly cargo the crew hoped to deliver to its targets.

Hundreds of examples are shown in a combination of archival photos from the wars and current photos of artwork in museum collections.

Fully captioned with aircraft type and unit assignment.

The Boys In The B-17: 8Th Air Force Combat Stories Of WWII

The author in flight gear after photo twelfth mission - second Air Medal
(age nineteen) He still wears lucky Air Cadet ring!

Hutch's third book contains short stories of boys on B-17 Flying Fortress crews in deadly missions with the Eighth Air Force in World War II and stories of his own teenage combat experiences as radio/gunner on twenty missions with the Mighty Eighth.

Teenagers enlisted or were drafted, trained and went into combat before they could legally vote or buy a drink. They volunteered to fly in the Army's Air Cadet Program and became a part of the greatest air armada in the world.

Most of the gunners on a bomber crew were teenagers and the average age of officers was twenty-four. Veterans' memoirs and diaries give amazing reports of fighter attacks, flak damage and those who survived being shot down out to become Prisoners of War.

These youngsters manned the planes that bombed and destroyed Germany's military and war industry.

The price of victory was high, with an extreme loss of aircrews and planes.
Eighth Air Force losses were among the highest of any military unit.

Like the author, teenagers who survived to tell the stories of those great air battles are now in their mid-eighties and rapidly passing into history.
