While certainly not the most numerous - with only 12,000 ever built - the B-17 became the best-known heavily-armed strategic bomber in military history. The Memphis Belle, much more rugged than its name implies, is the most well known of all these Flying Fortresses. Put into service in July of 1942, the Memphis Belle served England’s 324th Bomber Squadron and 94th Bomber Squad during World War Two. The Belle went on to become the first Air Force bomber to complete over twenty-five missions.
