Artist: Doug Kinsley
The B-17 was undoubtedly the most recognized bomber of WWII. It was favored over the B-24 in the European theater by its crews because it could take more punishment than the B-24's and still bring their crews home.
The most famous B-17 of all, the "Memphis Belle", was the first Flying Fortress to complete 25 missions, afterwards returning to the states and touring the country helping to sell war bonds.
No other bomber in history has evoked such affection from their crews and enthusiasts alike as the B-17 Flying Fortress.
About the Artist
Doug Kinsley is owner of Aviation Illustrations which has been in the business of selling his aviation art for the last 19 years.

Each drawing is thoroughly researched to ensure historical accuracy with unmatched detail - often taking up to 500 hours to complete the original, and on some of his prints you can find loving tributes to his family.
Doug has earned numerous awards for his artwork including a merit and honorable mention award at the EAA's annual art conference. His artwork is currently sold throughout the country in numerous art museums.
