CIVIL B-17s: A LISTING

Back to B-17 Information
Back to the Main Page

Provided below is a listing of all B-17s which have been assigned a legitimate civil registration at some point during the past fifty years. Also included are several B-17s which, for one reason or another, carried bogus numbers. This listing is drawn primarily from material included in the book Final Cut: The Post-War B-17 Flying Fortress and is updated with known changes. Those civil B-17s which still exist are color highlighted as follows: airworthy; on static display; under restoration; and in storage. We hope this provides a needed reference to those with a particular interest in the popular B-17.
