B-17 at Treasure Island World's Fair

greenspun.com : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

I'm trying to get information on the B-17 bomber displayed at the 1939-1940 exposition on Treasure Island. Does anyone have photos of this plane, or can they point me towards any resources that might be able to fill me in on its history? (I've been to the SF Public Library's photo site already.) I'm hoping there might be an on-line history group specializing in the World's Fair and its exhibits. Thanks.
