B-17G Flying Fortress
Air Mobility Command Museum
Dover, DE


B-17

B-17G on display at the Air Mobility Command museum in Dover, Delaware. The museum is on the south end of the base and is open to the public. This B-17 entered service too late for WWII, but it still had a long Air Force career. One of its assignments was testing concepts for radio controlled flying bombs and drone aircraft. Sleepy Time Gal was at the USAF Museum for many years, but was traded to the AMC Museum for B-17 Shoo Shoo Baby. The photo above is from the early 2000s, while the photo below is from 2010.
