I am trying to compile as many pictures as I can of the 512 B-17E's that were built by Boeing during WWII. Early B-17E models had flat nose cone and no chin turret. The photo album of this website has been a tremendous resource.

If anyone has any pictures of B-17E's out of books or magazines that they'd like to share, I would appreciate it. Serial #'s would be great too! I've Googled as many photos as I possibly can!

I'll have to go through my old magazine stacks, but I'm pretty sure theres an article or two from "Air Classics" in the '90s which had the B-17E. I seem to recall one having been found pretty intact in a junkyard, and another issue with a photo spread of early-model 'Forts.

I'll give it a good going over this weekend if I get the chance and get back to you, most of those issues havent seen the light of day since before I went to basic.

Not sure if these are all Es, but they lack the chin turret.

These four photos came from a Boeing website.
 
Still taking images to add to my collection if anyone has some!
 
If you want the four pages about B-17E serie coming from the magazine :
B-17 Flying Fortress - Part 1 - In detail scale - Aero Publishers, Inc USA.
Mail me, more simple for it, and the site won't get trouble with copyright.
I will give you an adress that links to "Caverne d'Ali Baba" !
