This Boeing B-17G was built at the Douglas Long Beach plant in California for delivery to the USAAF in February 1945. #44-83387 did not see combat duty, but instead spent most of its career on display and being used by 20th Century Fox for the silver screen - starring with Gregory Peck in 12 O'Clock High, as well as Tora! Tora! Tora!, and other movie and television productions. This B-17 spent almost 30 years on display at the State Armory in Greeley, Colorado before moving on to the California High Heritage Foundation for museum quality restoration.
*Important Notice – Please Read Carefully
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.
