Description:

Boeing Flying Fortress "SWEET ROSE O'GRADY, a B-17G"

Flying Fortress of the 303rd Bomb Group cuts through an English cloudscape in 1944. Holding a flight crew of 10, the mighty Boeing B-17 Fortress was the backbone of the heavy bombers during World War II. Most well known for its flight missions from England to Germany, the B-17 would deliver a devastating blow to all its targets. It flew 134 missions, more than any other B-17 of the 303rd, many more than the famous Memphis Belle. (The 303rd BG was an Eighth Air Force, B-17 Bomber Group stationed in Molesworth, England. )

Here Robert Karr has perhaps created one of the finest examples of a Boeing Flying Fortress with his Sweet Rose O'Grady. His attention to detail from back to front is hard to match.
