    Hi everyone.
    this is my first time on here, i stumbled on the site by accident.
    Does anyone know whether the SAAF ever took delivery or operated B.17's? They operated B.24's, Havocs and Marauders but I can find no record of them ever having used B.17's... does anyone know better?

    Cheers,
    Pejayte

    I do not think we ever had any B-17 in our airforce and would have heard, see or read about it, but will look it up for you.

    Plesier my friend.

    No I got no info on a B-17 in the SAAF. I was at the SAAF airforce museum and did not see any of such or read anything about it.

    Jammer / sorry I could not give you any good news.

    31 and 34 squadrons were the only SAAF heavy bomber units and they flew B-24 Liberators out of Foggia.
