With so many published books and articles on the B-17 , it is easy to overlook a new one. However I think this one is different as it explains and shows very well all the details of the aircraft in a way I do not remember having seen (unless you have a T.O.). On the other hand it mixes this type of information with fascinating details of the receonstruction type of work.
All in all a very interesting book for those with a penchant for the mechanical things.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Darren J. Egan on 7 Jun 2011
Format: Hardcover
Have had this book for a couple of days now and have found it absolutely fascinating.
Very easy to read and follow, with a great selection of photographs that I have not seen before,
many by the author documenting the restoration work. This is my third Haynes manual and I must applaud this growing series of books.
What a shame it was left to the French 'Pink Lady' crew and owners to help out with the making of this book when we have a flying B-17 in the UK.
Otherwise, a very welcome addition to the Haynes series.

Great stuff, and not necessarily for those solely interested in the nuts and bolts of this iconic aircraft.
