The Boeing B-17 bomber was developed as a Flying Fortress for the United States Army Corps in 1930. The Aircraft manufacturing giant, Boeing bagged the contract of manufacturing the B 17. The Company delivered better than expectations. The first test flight of the aircraft was recorded on 28th July 1935. The aircraft was introduced in the USAC in 1938. The cost of each B-17 was approximately US$ 2,38,000 and the USAC bought almost 12731 aircrafts in a span of 9 years. Although, the first crash ended up in an air disaster, Boeing made several changes to the design and made the aircraft a runaway success.
