Synopsis

Swedish Fortresses The Boeing F-17 Fortress in Civil and Military Service by Jan Forsgren

Many USAAF aircraft landed in neutral Sweden during World War II. The Swedish authorities arranged to buy many of these from the US, to supplement their limited and aging aircraft stocks. The B-17 Flying Fortress was selected for conversion to an airliner, and Saab undertook the work. This book tells, for the first time in English, the story of these aircraft and their subsequent careers, in Sweden, Denmark and France. No other B-17s were ever used as airliners, so this is a unique addition to the well-known history of the Fortress.Illustrated with many photos, both contemporary and of surviving airframes, and with color profiles of the color schemes carried by these aircraft. Detailed plans of the modified airframes are included.REVIEWS combines well written narrative with period photographs. Model Airplanes International, April 2011

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
