    In 1946 the Dutch "Rijksluchtvaartschool " (State flying School) received three B-17G's. The three machines were from
    the 15th Air Force, 2e Bombergroup, stationed Amendola, Italiy (1945-1946) On e for sure was 44-83330 named "Foggia". But the other 2 are unknown to me. ( the three were used by the USAF to map the Dutch Coast). Is there anybody on this Forum who can tell me more information about these three aircraft. Any help is highly appreciated.

    Welcome to the Forums Andre! I unfortunately am not an expert in this, but I'm fairly positive someone on this forum can find the info for you.

    The United States Air Force Historical Center at Maxwell Airforce Base is your next point of inquiry, I believe.
