Genuine Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress PlaneTag - Nine-O-Nine
The most widely recognized aircraft of World War II, the B-17 Flying Fortress quickly set itself apart as a robust, high-flying, long-range bomber with the ability to defend itself. The countless stories and photos widely circulated of many B-17s surviving extensive battle damage raised the aircraft to mythic proportions.
This PlaneTag is from the Collings Foundation Nine-O-Nine, B-17G-85-DL, 44-83575, civil registration N93012.
The original Nine-O-Nine was a Boeing B-17G-30-BO Flying Fortress heavy bomber, of the 323rd Bomb Squadron, 91st Bomb Group, that completed 140 combat missions during World War II, believed to be the Eighth Air Force record for most missions, without loss to the crews that flew it. The original aircraft, a block 30 B-17G manufactured by Boeing, was nicknamed after the last three digits of her serial number: 42-31909. Nine-0-Nine was added to the USAAF inventory on December 15, 1943, and flown overseas on February 5, 1944.
The Collings Flying Fortress was built at Long Beach, CA by the Douglas Aircraft Company and accepted on April 7, 1945. Serial number 44-83575 Nine-O-Nine is now owned and flown by the Collings Foundation, who replaced the majority of the wing’s skin after sustaining storm damage.
PlaneTags are made from actual retired aircraft fuselage, not merely stamped metal. Because PlaneTags are made from real fuselage, each PlaneTag bears the color, thickness, and wear and tear from the portion of the fuselage from which it was cut and it is therefore rare to create two identical PlaneTags. These variations and imperfections are not product flaws. They are part of the beauty of PlaneTags. As a result, you will not have an option to select the color of your PlaneTag. The images on this website are provided for reference only and should not be used as the sole basis for choosing a particular PlaneTag.
SAFETY NOTICE: Not recommended for children under 8 years of age. This product contains original chemical-based paint which may cause respiratory irritation if ingested or inhaled in large quantities. Keep out of mouth.
