The B-17 Flying Fortress is probably one of the most recognizable aircraft of all time. Many would say there's something romantic about this weapon of war that paved the way deep into Germany during World War 2. One of the main reasons it has become such an aviation legend is the B-17 named 'Memphis Belle' which not only was the subject of a documentary during the war but also the first crew to make 25 missions and be sent home to tour the country in the Belle and promote buying war bonds. Over 12,700 B-17s were built during its service life.
The Warbird Photos Aviation Poster Series celebrates the classic "Keep 'Em Flying" and other famous slogans during World War 2 that paid tribute to the war effort and the magnificent aircraft that lead the way. From calls for more production to promoting the latest aircraft and recruitment for pilots; these style of posters became a hallmark of the 1940s. This original retro poster designs pay tribute to these posters with authentic fonts, colors, and designs!
