B-17 Flying Fortress T-shirt

AboutRead Hero Story

The B-17 Flying Fortress T-shirt embodies the aircraft that entered into WW2 as a premier bomber with longer range and a bigger payload than any other aircraft at the time.  Crewed with 10 men, it boasted an impressive defensive armament array of .50 cal machine guns located all over the aircraft.  The B-17 Flying Fortress was responsible for the most daylight air-raids over Germany during the war and remains an icon of reliability, firepower and unique design among bombers. 

Famous examples of the B-17 Flying Fortress throughout the war include "Memphis Belle" and "Ole' 666" the gunship which had 19 .50 cal machine guns and was a thorn in the side to the Japanese.

I'm very proud to wear this shirt. My Grandfather was a top- gunner in a B-17 during World War ll. For the longest time my family thought he was a tail gunner until we found a picture of his crew of "The Buckeye Babe" I bought the tail gunner shirt for the very reason still love it and wear it proudly hope you make a top- gunner shirt, I'll purchase it immediately.

I got a shipping confirmation within about an hour of placing my order and had the shirt in a few days. The B-17 design is very clean with no heavy or rubbery feel and the fabric is soft with a great fit. And they threw in not one, but TWO STICKERS!!! I will definitely be ordering more.


Shirts run very small compared to gruntstyle.

Please email us and we will be happy to exchange the shirt for a larger size or refund you.
