The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress is a four-engined heavy bomber developed in the 1930s for the United States Army Air Corps (USAAC).

From its introduction in 1938, the B-17 Flying Fortress evolved through numerous design advances, becoming the third-most-produced bomber of all time, behind the four-engined B-24 and the multirole, twin-engined Ju 88.

The B-17 Flying Fortress became symbolic in the United States of that country’s air power. In a 1943 Consolidated Aircraft poll of 2,500 men in cities where Consolidated adverts had been run in newspapers, 73% had heard of the B-24 and 90% knew of the B-17.
