Product description

Many USAAF aircraft landed in neutral Sweden during WW2. The Swedish authorities arranged to buy many of these from the US, to supplement their limited and ageing aircraft stocks. The B-17 Flying Fortress was selected for conversion to an airliner, and Saab undertook the work. This book tells, for the first time in English, the story of these aircraft and their subsequent careers, in Sweden, Denmark and France. No other B-17s were ever used as airliners, so this is a unique addition to the well-known history of the Fortress.
Illustrated with many photos, both contemporary and of surviving airframes, and with colour profiles of the colour schemes carried by these aircraft. Detailed plans of the modified airframes are included.

Story of the "Shoo Shoo Shoo Baby" restoration is included.
A4 HB plus A2 fold-outs with profiles of 40cm
Pages - 128 (64 in colour)
