Wallpaper Description:
Photoshop photo manipulation

From its pre-war inception, the USAAC (later USAAF) touted the aircraft as a strategic weapon; it was a potent, high-flying, long-ranging bomber capable of unleashing great destruction, able to defend itself, and having the ability to return home despite extensive battle damage. It quickly took on mythic proportions. Stories and photos of B-17s surviving battle damage widely circulated, increasing its iconic status. Despite an inferior range and bombload compared to the more numerous B-24 Liberator, a survey of Eighth Air Force crews showed a much higher rate of satisfaction in the B-17. With a service ceiling greater than any of its Allied contemporaries, the B-17 established itself as a superb weapons system, dropping more bombs than any other U.S. aircraft in World War II. Of the 1.5 million tonnes of bombs dropped on Germany by U.S. aircraft, 640,000 were dropped from B-17s

I definitely favor B-17s over what ever the other bomber is ( B1 or B-52). The movie in 1949 Twelve O’Clock High, then the TV series Twelve O’Clock High from 1964 to 1967, then in 1990 the movie Memphis Belle, 1991 TV episode of Amazing Stories: Book One entitled The Mission, and in 2002 Steven Spielbergs tv miniseries Taken episode 1: Beyond the Sky all featured B-17s. There are more

In the "Most Popular Bomber" class, the fight for that title is a hard and bloody fight indeed.
