B-17 42-3037 / Windy City Avenger Details

After research, the picture with the nose art does not show the B-17 “42-3037 / Windy City Avenger” because the B-17 in the picture shows features of a Boeing production (side machine gun window). The exact serial number of the “Windy City Avenger” in the picture is not known.
