Thunderbird Home
B-17G #42-38050 Thunderbird was one of the 303rd's most famous aircraft and one of the few B-17s to fly over 100 combat missions. The B-17 Thunderbird website led to the development of this 303rd Bomb Group website. It contains a wealth of information on that great B-17, including all 538 crewmen who flew on her 134 recorded flights.
