This iconic plane stands as a witness to those who sacrificed all in the defense of freedom. Considered by many to be the most recognized aircraft of WWII, there is no question that this formidable weapon helped win the war. It boasted a heavy defense of thirteen 50-caliber Browning machine guns and it could carry a bomb load of 8,000 pounds. Today, roughly 50 of these aircraft exist worldwide; approximately ten are still flying.
