Oh, The Glorious B-17!

The Boeing B-17 bomber was one of the most loved aircrafts of its time. First introduced in 1935, the plane went into mass production in 1939 when the United States Congress became aware that war was certain. Boeing introduced many variations of the plane, each one slightly better than the last. The introduction of this airplane spearheaded the USAAF’s doctrine that heavily armed bombers could fly in formations and fight their way through enemy fighters to carry out their missions. Unfortunately, the bombers were big and slow, so the formations required long-ranged fighters to accompany the B-17s. The B-17 was far superior to all predecessors.

Pearl Harbor 70 Years Later

Today is the 70th anniversary of the attacks on Pearl Harbor. On this tragic day in 1941, over 2,000 American soldiers and sailors lost their lives in less than two hours.  The attack on Pearl Harbor was the most deadly attack on American soil, and held that distinction until 9/11/2001. The attack lasted about two hours, but delivered unbelievable devastation. The Japanese managed to destroy vast amounts of Navy equipment, including 200 planes and 20 naval vessels – including 8 massive battleships. The sailors at Pearl Harbor fought back as hard as they could, but there was little they could do to stop the assault. Several ships sunk in the aftermath, leading to the drowning death of many sailors. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor ... Read more
