To B or Not to B? Take the Poll.

Boeing Aircraft manufactured plenty of different planes in WWII. The ones they were most famous for included the B-17 AKA the "Flying Fortress"; the B-24, which had the biggest production run but traded quality for quantity; and the B-29 (pictured), the "Superfortress" which incorporated many advances from the previous planes. Which Boeing would you have preferred to fly? Take the poll at left and tell us.

  1. I don't think the Boeing B-17 was better than the Consolidated B-24 and the numbers produced indicate the reverse. The Boeing was an older design and didn't have the range of its competitor. Neither should be compared to the B-29 which was a later design again and built to different specifications which made it larger, and pressurized. The chronic unreliability of its engines were its single drawback.
