B-17 Loadout

Did you know that when a B-17 took off on a typical mission it carried 4 tons of bombs and 1 ton of fuel? There was also 1.3 tons of .50 caliber bullets for the machine guns. The crew and their personal equipment weighed in at about 1 ton or so. Lots of weight packed into those Flying Fortresses!
