B17 Flying Fortress - Lego compatible COBI 5703 - heavy bomber

Regular price £59.99


Four-engined heavy bomber developed in the 1930s by Boeing. Introduced in 1938, the B-17 Flying Fortress became the third-most produced bomber of all time. It was a fast, high-flying, long-range bomber with heavy defensive armament and was used mainly on daytime sorties by USAAF over Germany and also complemented RAF Bomber Command's nighttime raids and helped secure air superiority over Western Europe in preparation for the Normandy landings in 1944. The B-17 dropped more bombs than any other U.S. aircraft in World War II and a handful of them are still airworthy to this day. 12,731 were produced between 1936 and 1945.
