For our aviation fans who respect the service of this B-17 Bomber during WWII...this is a beautiful and unique gift. This metal wall art of the "Flying Fortress" would be a special addition to any room or office or garage or shop. This historic plane was a relatively fast, high-flying, long-range bomber with heavy defensive armament at the expense of bomb load. It developed a reputation for toughness based upon stories and photos of badly damaged B-17s safely returning to base. The B-17 developed a reputation as an effective bomber, dropping more bombs than any other U.S. aircraft in World War II. This beautiful replica is made in the USA and measures 18 inches long by 9 inches wide.
