An “extremely rare” 1941 B-17E Flying Fortress, described as “one of the few Seattle built Boeing B-17’s surviving to date” has been listed for sale. The listing states (in part):
It is estimated that the structure is approximately 80% restored. The front fuselage including the nose and cockpit still need to be rebuilt. Restoration work by Vintage Airframes. This B-17E was flown to Washington State in 1998 for restoration. The workmanship to date is second to none. If completed to the same standards, it will be the finest B-17 restoration in the world. The project is substantially complete with the correct engines and propellers.
The aircraft (S/N 2682 / N12355) is located in Washington State and is currently being offered for $9,000,000. Click here to check out the complete listing.
