Assigned to the 323rd BS at Bassingbourn on February 24, 1944, this aircraft was named "Nine O Nine" by the bomber's radioman Jack Grosh after the last three digits in its serial number. The aircraft set a new Eighth Air Force record by completing 126 missions (out of a total of 140) without a single abort. "Nine O Nine" returned to the USA on June 8, 1945, and was scrapped in Kingman, Arizona, the following year.

Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress

Designed to meet a US Army Air Corps requirement for a multi-engined bomber to replace the B-10, the B-17 first flew on July 18, 1935. Best known for its role in the US Army Air Forces' daylight strategic bombing campaign during World War II, the B-17 could fly high and had a long range, and was capable of defending itself from enemy fighters. It was also tough, withstanding extensive battle damage, and was capable of carrying a 6,000 lb bombload. The B-17 became one of the symbols of Allied air power, equipping 32 overseas combat groups and dropping a total of 580,631 metric tons of bombs on European targets.
