    I just noticed that theis thread is almost a year old, does anybody know if Chopper still have B-17 relics?

    PB, You seem to have the ability of finding B-17 crash info, could I ben your ear and ask if you have information on "Battlin Betsy" of the 388th, I do not have a serial number. I have 24 B-17 relics and I am putting them on display boards and looking to place the entire display in an air museum. Any help is appericated.

    Hi mate sorry have not been on here for a while I have still got lots of the b17 parts, I would sell them as I've started bottle digging and don't really go relicing anymore. The only thing is I don't really want to post as there is a lot, I would have sort it all out.
