In 1935 Boeing's entry into the Army Air Corps multi-engine bomber competition was a daring gamble using the company's own resources and money. Boeing correctly anticipated that aircraft larger and faster than the usual twin-engined bomber would be the way of the future. From 1935 until production ceased in April 1945, a total of 12,726 B-17 Flying Fortresses of all types were produced. The last production type and the most numerous was the B-17G which had the greatest bomb load and range of any version. It was the B-17G that did the most damage to German occupied Europe and devastated the production capacity of Nazi Germany with its countless daytime raids. In this day of multi-million or even billion dollar military aircraft, it should be noted that the average cost of a ready-to-fly B-17G was only US$238,329, a mere pittance by today's standards! Today, over two dozen B-17 Flying Fortresses are in museums or flying collections.
