    Default B-17G in England

    Guys when did the first B-17G arrived in England?

    My source says

    December 1, 1943
    The 708th, 709th, 710th and 711th Bombardment Squadrons (Heavy), 447th Bombardment Group (Heavy), arrive at Rattlesden, England from the US with B-17G's. They will fly their first mission on 24 Dec.


    Do you have any charts on quantities of B-17E,F and G in England, used by the 8th Air Force between 1942-1945?
