B17G Flying Fortress Sally B
During World War Two the USAF B17G Flying Fortress was a common sight throughout East Anglia. This photograph of B17G Flying Fortress Sally B was taken on the 31st July whilst she was displaying to a record breaking crowd of over 5,000, providing a nostalgic flying against the backdrop of Old Buck a former World War II USAF Base.
Constructed by Lockheed-Vega plant in California in June 1945, Sally B was one of the last to be constructed and too late to see war service. In 1975 Ted White brought F-BGSR to Britain via Biggin Hill to the IWM Duxford, as N17TE where she would be named after Ted’s long-term Companion Elly-Sallingboe and begin her her new life as Sally B.
