    Note

    The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress was a four-engine heavy bomber aircraft developed for the United States Army Air Corps (USAAC) in the 1930s. The B-17 was subsequently used by the US Army Air Forces (USAAF) in their daylight precision strategic bombing campaign of WWII against German industrial, civilian, and military targets from 1943-45 and many were based on Suffolk airfields. Of the 1.5 million tonnes of bombs dropped on Germany by U.S. aircraft, 640,000 were dropped from B-17s. About 4,750, or one third, of B-17s built were lost in combat.
