B-17G #42-32024 was delivered to 524 Bombing Squadron of 379 Bombing Group in February 1944 and was given the name "Swamp Fire". The 379th flew more sorties than any other bombing group in the 8th Air Force and dropped a greater tonnage of bombs than any other group. Swamp Fire was flown by forty different crews during 1944, and became the first heavy bomber of the group to fly 100 missions without interruption. At the end of October 1944, the crews commented: "After a new nose and tail section, a new ball turret, 16 engine changes, three wing replacements and over 1,000 bullet hole and flak repairs, not much remains of the original aircraft!" Swamp Fire finally returned to the United States in July 1945 and was sold for scrap later that year.

Die-cast metal construction with some plastic components.
Realistic panel lines, antennas, access panels and surface details.
Authentic markings and panel details.
Metal display stand to show the aircraft "in flight".
Interchangeable extended/retractable landing gear with rotating wheels.
