B17 Flying Fortress Cleared for Takeoff at Livermore. Sister to the well known “Memphis Belle,” here is the B-17 Flying Fortress known as “Nine-O-Nine” landing at our very own Livermore Airport. The B-17s were so numerous over the skies of Germany that bombing runs became known as the “Aluminum Overcast.” 12,731 B-17s were built for $238,000 each.
