    Product Description

    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 B-17 nine-o-nine was named after the last three digits of her serial number: 42-31909, and is representative of the B-17's tough reputation. After joining the war in 1944, the nine-o-nine completed 132 consecutive missions without aborting for mechanical reasons or loss of crew, believed to be a record. In all she flew 1,129 hours and dropped 562,000 pounds of bombs before returning to the us at the end of hostilities. The collings foundation currently operates a fully restored and operational B-17G in "nine-o-nine" colors, in honor of the veterans of the world war II. It is one of the finest B-17 restorations ever done and can be seen at the wings of freedom airshow that visits 120 cities nationwide. This die-cast metal airplane PS5402-3 comes in 1:155 scale with plastic stand and is approximately 5 3/4 inches long with 8 inch wingspan. Die cast Model of WWII bomber. 1/155 scale. Display stand included.
