Fact about The B-17 Flying Fortress

During World War II, the B-17 was known for its exceptional durability. One example that demonstrates this durability is the "All-American" B-17 that survived a mid-air collision with a German fighter, severing its tail completely. However, the crew managed to land the plane safely and unharmed. This incredible toughness is how the B-17 earned its "Flying Fortress" nickname.
