B-17 Flying Fortress
"Little Patches" B-17G Flying Fortress Fine Art Print
After just its first combat mission, Little Patches B-17 42-31678 was splintered from shrapnel, prompting the name "Little Patches". The aircraft was later re-assigned to the 401st Bomb Squadron and received some touch-ups to the paint scheme including updated nose art. With a colorful and dramatic service history, Little Patches B-17 flew over 100 missions and brought over 30 different crews home to safety. Like many other Fortresses, she was finally scrapped in the United States after the war.
This fine art print includes an aged background designed from an actual World War II military map. A timeless design for any decor!
