B-17F-55-BO 42-29494

99th Bomb Group


This B17F purchased by citizens of Aurora also carried the additional title of "Our Nel" and, at a later date, was emblazoned with the pin up girl of its tail fin. It may also have carried the title "Maverick" at some point and it is not known if the original War Bond title was still in place or had been removed.

Further information is sought on its missions and also its War Bond christening ceremony.

No mission listing is currently available for this aircraft
