Production. B-17F heavy bombers. A line of fuselage nose sections for B-17F heavy bombers moving in an overhead conveyor trolley toward the final assembly line at the Long Beach, California, plant of Douglas Aircraft Company. Better known as the "Flying Fortress," the B-17F is a later model B-17, which distinguished itself in action in the South Pacific, over Germany and elsewhere.
