War birds parked at Kingman, Arizona, soon after WWII.  This photo was taken shortly after the end of the war.  Most of these spectacular and valiant B-17 bombers were sold to salvage companies shortly after the war.  They were reprocessed into all kind of metal products.  More than likely something used by everyone today has a little piece of history in it.

B-17 909 was one of the lucky ones and is still flying today. See the video below.
