B-17 F-95-BO, "Battle Queen – Peg of my Heart" Regensburg mission, August 17, 1943


I don't much care for colorized photos although the net (and certain publications) are full of them. This particular image though caught my eye as being very well done.

It depicts B-17 F-95-BO, Serial Nr. 42-30315, Marking: S, named "Battle Queen – Peg of my Heart" 8th Air Force, 390th BG, (569th BS), based at Framlingham, England following a belly-landing in Utzenstorf, Switzerland on 17 August 1943, the Regensburg mission.

The RAF-Waffe visit Framlingham, home to the 390th BG

Are colorized images 'fraud'?
