B-17G
Unit: 69 tajeset "Hammers", IDF/AF
Serial: 1602

Ramat David, 1948. Early in 1948 an Israeli Purchase Team in the United States discovered four B-17s on a dump in Florida and bought them for the IAF. The aircraft were in a very poor condition having been stripped of the turrets and instruments and left to the elements. A team of engineers set to with sheet metal and plywood and brought them up to flying condition. Three were made airworthy and these flew via the Azores to Zatek in Czechoslovakia, where supply flights were being loaded for Israel. Here the B-17s were given additional and better instruments and were loaded with bombs for their final flight to Israel. On their way to Israel, the aircraft diverted to Egypt where one bombed Cairo and the other two bombed Egyptian positions in Sinai. The Boeing B-17s were given numbers H1 (1601), H2 (1602) and H3 (1603). As H2 (1602) was in the worst condition, it was given a complete, but rather crude re-paint, in a four-colour Light Brown, Dark Brown, Light Green and Dark Green disruptive camouflage pattern on the uppersurfaces with light Bluish Grey undersurfaces. The Mickey Mouse cartoon was on both sides of the fin. The Magen David national insignia was in six positions, and the serial number was in blue.

Suez Crisis, October 1956. Two of the B-17s were brought back into service for the Suez Campaign including 23 (formerly 1603). Originally planned to have the full Blue and Brown standard uppersurfaces camouflage. 23 operated in the Brown only as the Operation commenced before painting was completed. By this time the B-17s operated with the full complement of gun turrets restored. Again, Suez Stripes were earned around the fuselage and wings.
