398th B-17 Aircraft Photos

Below are two indexes to our 398th B-17 Aircraft Photos ordered by A/C number.

  1. 398th B-17 Aircraft Photos
  2. Unidentified 398th B-17 Aircraft Photos

Unidentified 398th B-17 Aircraft are known B-17 aircraft based on various markings, context and source, but actual aircraft serial numbers cannot clearly be seen in the photo.

Searching the Lists

Besides scrolling through the list, you may wish to use your web browser's Find command to search the index by crew name, aircraft name, or date. It should be noted that some aircraft entries in the indexes below may only have been with the 398th during training in the USA.

Aircraft Numbering

On many WWII aircraft, the 1st number of the full Aircraft Number (A/C No.) is not indicated. In the case of 398th B-17s, this missing number is a "4" and that number and the next number indicated the year the aircraft was built. Since 398th aircraft were built 1942-1944, the first number will be either 2, 3, or 4.

Other Aircraft Identifiers

Besides the A/C No., there are three other key aircraft identifiers. The first is the Bomb Group Identifier. For the 398th, this was the "Triangle W" which can me seen on the tail. The 2nd identifier is the "Squadron Identifier." For the 398th, the Squadron Id's were:

  1. N8 for the 600th,
  2. 3O for the 601st,
  3. K8 for the 602nd, and
  4. N7 for the 603rd.

The third identifier is the alpha letter (A-Z) associated with an aircraft within a squadron.

In the everyday "lingo" of the times, the aircraft were usually referred to by the last four numbers of their A/C No. and Squadron letter. Thus 601st aircraft 42-102516 3O-H was referred to as 2516-H. A useful guide in identifying 398th B-17s is the Identifying 398th B-17s page.

Our 398th Aircraft Histories Lists provide a full list of aircraft and numbers associated with the 398th.
