"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.
