The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress is a four-engined heavy bomber developed in the 1930s for the United States Army Air Corps (USAAC).

The planes were primarily used in carpet bombing missions. The B-17 dropped more bombs than any other U.S. aircraft in World War II. The Boeing B-17, also called the 'Flying Fortress', was heavily armored and included a weapons system on board an aircraft.

In addition to its role as a bomber, the B-17 was also employed as a transport, antisubmarine aircraft, drone controller, and search-and-rescue aircraft. Boeing Plant 2 built a total of 6,981 B-17s in various models, and another 5,745 were built under a collaborative effort by Douglas and Lockheed. Only a few B-17s survive today, featured at museums and air shows; most were scrapped at the end of the war.
