A Story Of The 457th Bomb Group (H) During World War II
by Lt. Colonel Roland Byers, USAFR (Ret.)
“Her serial number was #42-97075 and she was a real Boeing – there were differences and a Boeing was always the best. I could tell the difference as soon as I stepped into the cockpit – as I could about her Wright Cyclone engines.”
“She was the first silver B-17 to be assigned to the 457th Bomb Group and I got her.”
