Some B-17F skins for ya!
As usual, download it at Flying-Legends!
Flying Legends Download Page (http://www.flying-legends.net/php/downloads/listings.php?cat_id=142)

These are 3 historically accurate skins (at least, as accurate as I can make them!) for three bombers used by the 385th Bomber Group, 8th Air Force in 1943.

I did skins of these a/c because my grandfather flew in each of them as bombardier of the 'Fryer' crew. Mary Ellen II was their primary a/c; they were shot down by Flak over Holland 20 Oct. 1943 flying the "Shack Bunny" as a standby crew. (Mary Ellen was the name of the pilot's girlfriend. There was also an original Mary Ellen and a Mary Ellen III)

No, Sea Norris, I don't have those books. My dad's supposed to be sending me his official 385th BG history, so I'm sure to have more then.
