Details

The B-17 Flying Fortress is a four-engine heavy bomber aircraft developed by Boeing for the United States Army Air Corps. It was a high-flying, long-range bomber, heavily used in World War II for daylight precision bombing of strategic military targets. It was highly effective and reliable, and developed a reputation of being able to return to its home base despite extensive battle damage. The Liberty Bell (42-97849), a B-17G, arrived at the Framlingham Airfield on 27 May 1944 as a member of the 390th Bombardment Group, 570th Bombardment Squadron. On 14 February 1945 she was heavily damaged during an Oil Campaign raid, and had to make a forced landing in Belgium. Two crewman were killed in action (KIA) and one wounded in action (WIA).
