    One of the main and most important Allied bombers, the B-17 was sparked interest and greed target of Germans and Japanese during WW2. Inevitably some planes were captured and tested by the enemy. I share with you the link below that has some photos of these planes, some rare, with German and Japanese markings. To see the photos, visit the link below:

    Here is an oral history by MAJ (later MG) Robert Goldsworthy. He was shot down over Japan in December 1944 and was ordered to instruct the Japanese how to operate a captured B-17. Do a search for B-17 and on page 132 you can see his account. https://app.leg.wa.gov/oralhistory/goldsworthy.pdf

    It would be nice if there were some context for the photos

    Too much effort for Pampas, IIRC, that was his name here, Tony Osbourne was one of his sock puppets he used to shill his website on various forums.

    I think they all gave up, or pampas and his aliases got a job and moved out of mommy's basement.

    This thread is from 2015.
