B-17 with exotic painting

Postby pampa14 » Sun Aug 23, 2015 2:35 pm

I share with you some photos of a Boeing B-17 bomber with an exotic and unusual camouflage. Does anyone know if this plane entered service and what the function of this painting? I count on your visit.,

It's a formation assembly ship.

Aircraft no longer combat worthy and painted in distinctive and bright colors for each bomber group to form up with before setting out on a mission.
