Most B-17 paintings show them in combat over Hitler's Europe, but Flying Fortresses played a role in the Pacific too. Here we see two B-17Es of the 13th Air Force, 98th Squadron, "Galloping Gus" and "Typhoon McGoon II" hooking it home after a bombing mission against Japanese positions in New Guinea.   Nakajima Rufe floatplanes rise to engage them, but prove to be no match for the Fortress gunners.
