I suggest you all read this. Please don't use it for an argument about the durability of the B-17, as this particular airplane, as you shall find out, was bastardized out of parts from everything you can think of. Yes, even the kitchen sink.

This is an excerpt of Martin Caidin's book, B-17: The Flying Forts: Please enjoy it.
