#GPRepost #reposter #regram_app @wartime_images via @GPRepostApp for Android ------------------ B-17 Flying Fortress ‘Five Grand’ She got the name "Five Grand" at the factory due to her being the 5,000th B-17 to roll off Boeing's Seattle factory floor. She is covered in the signatures of the Boeing employees. She went to England and had to make a belly landing due to hydraulic failure before even flying a mission. She was repaired and assigned to the 96th Bomb Group, flying 78 combat missions with all of the signatures still on her. After the war she returned to the U.S. and was scrapped at Kingman,AZ. #ww2#boeing#b17#flyingfortress#fivegrand#noseart#mightyeighth #usaaf#eighthairforce #wartime#bomber#seattle#1940s #bomber#aircraft#aeroplane
