YANKEE LADY B-17G, 485829 by Margaret M. Glinke

This beautifully restored "Flying Fortress", is owned by the Yankee Air Force and flies at air shows. Built in 1945 at the end of WW II , it was used as a Coast Guard air-sea rescue craft. It was converted to do aerial survey and later modified into a fire bomber. It was in the movie, "Tora, Tora, Tora". After a gear-up landing in Salmon, Idaho, the retardant tank under the bomb bay was damaged. The silver metal, red tailed plane is marked 381 BG, 534 BS and it resides at the Yankee Air Museum, Willow Run Airport, Belleville, Michigan.

The quality of the Margaret Glinke's fine art is much higher than we can show within limits of this web site. Slight tonal changes and blurring around the areas of strong contrast are a result of the JPEG compression process, and are not part of the high quality originals.
