Many USAAF aircraft landed in neutral Sweden during World War II. The Swedish authorities arranged to buy many of these from the US, to supplement their limited and aging aircraft stocks. The B-17 Flying Fortress was selected for conversion to an airliner, and Saab undertook the work. This book tells, for the first time in English, the story of these aircraft and their subsequent careers, in Sweden, Denmark and France. No other B-17s were ever used as airliners, so this is a unique addition to the well-known history of the Fortress.Illustrated with many photos, both contemporary and of surviving airframes, and with color profiles of the color schemes carried by these aircraft. Detailed plans of the modified airframes are included.
