Swedish B-17 Flying Fortress Pictures... anybody have some that I can use? I'm currently adding all the ex-interned Swedish Fortress's to the registry and thought it would be spiffy if I could add images as well. And if WIX members don't have them then I doubt anybody does.

Do you mean just the ones that Sweden kept ?
If you search google images for "B-17 +SE-BAH" there are three on the first page. Maybe others following.

Otherwise there were a lot of them you know :wink: .

Hi Scott,

What, just B-17s? My uncle arrived in Sweeden 29 May 1944 in a shot up B-24 after a raid on Politz.
I have a collection of his photos. I'll get more to you when I can.

Here is a sample.

I've got a couple of 42-32076 post-Sweden, in Denmark as Store Bjørn. Helpful?
