Tip of the iceberg

37 B-17s in formation

37 B-17s in formation, date and location unknown

I haven’t been able to figure out the who/where/when of this picture but it’s striking nonetheless…

UPDATE: This is possibly a formation from the 447th BG

  1. I’ve looked at the picture, and I am not entirely convinced that it is truly a photograph. It just doesn’t look right to me. Where did you find it.

    • Honestly, I have no idea where I found it. I’ve got folders of saved pics that go back 20 years give or take so it could have been through an image search, posted on a forum, etc.

      I dug around some more and it shows up on the 447th Bomb Group Association page with no other information ( http://www.447bg.com/B17%27s%20in%20flight.htm ) as well as some other pages but the 447th BG page is the only unit specific page I can find associated with that pic.
