    I’m doing a project on Miss X, the B17 bomber that was flown by a 1st Lt. John „Jack“ Joseph Lee from Salem, Massachusetts.

    Can you point me in a strong direction so that I can research more about, not only the plane itself and its missions, but what became of it following the war. I know it ended up as scrap metal, sadly, but I need to secure more information on this beloved bomber that Lt. Lee rather cherished.

    Any suggestions, guidance, or direction is greatly appreciated. And have a very Happy Holiday that’s approaching soon.

    Kind regards,
