B17 Flying Fortress Game by Atari
The B-17 bomber was the primary bomber used for long-range daylight bombing in World War II.
B-17 Flying Fortress lets you take control of any of the 10 individual positions of the plane, and puts you in command of an entire squadron of 12 bombers.
B-17 delivers a full WWII flight-sim experience. As the bombardier, zoom in on targets 20,000 feet below to accurately destroy them.
Swat down interceptors as a tail gunner. You can even escort the lumbering B-17sin a fighter plane, or join the Luftwaffe and try to keep the bombers from delivering their payloads.-Amazon.com Product Description

Army Air Corps Eighth Air Force B17 Fortress Photos
Family photos are included to make the site more realistic! These pictures were taken September 12th, 2002
while a B17 and B24 visited Hyannis, Cape Cod Ma!
My Dad was a Technical Sargent and Turret Gunner on B17's in the Army Air Corp Eighth Force, 384th Bomb Group.
He was stationed at Kettering, England the last two years of the war.
After the War, he got his pilots license and flew piper cubs and back in 2002, he was lucky to sit in the co-pilots seat
of a Cessna 402, which my Son-in-Law was piloting.
My dad was 81 Years old at the time, and he took some grand photos of the Cape Cod Canal.
This day made my dad very happy and he still remembers it well.
It was the last time he flew in a plane. He suffered three massive stroked in a row at the age of 87 and this has left him severely disabled. A week before his stroke, he had a few medical tests, and two doctors said
he passed with flying colors. He is now in a nursing home and has improved a bit, but not enough to come home.
On the wall next to his bed, his bulletin board is covered with photos of B17's and pictures of his old crew members,
along with hand drawn pictures his Great Grandson has drawn for him (of course, the B17)

B-17 Bomber Pilot's Flight Operating Manual
The Boeing B-17 was the first mass-produced, four-engine heavy bomber.
Used throughout World War II for strategic bombing, the plane earned a reputation for its toughness and versatility.
Carrying a crew of ten, and 8,000 pounds of bombs !
During World War II, my father was a tail gunner on a B-17, with the 384th Bomb Group, 347th division.
He and his crew members were among a few of the lucky ones to survive a crash landing after being hit by flak.
If anyone knows of any surviving members of his old crew, please let me know! He flew on several different B17's.
I have the logs somewhere, of his crew and plane names, just have to find out where.
If anyone would care to send my dad a card, please mail them to:
876 Route 28 Hyannis Ma 02601
I know he would love to receive mail!
On March 28, 2011, he will be 90 years old! Birthday Cards would be appreciated!
