"Arf & Arf," serial number 42-38064, was a B-17G Flying Fortress. It was stationed in Europe in World War II. One of my friend's ( his name is Aaron ) relatives flew the plane. His name was Lieutenant Arnit Lee Furr. It was famous because of its taxi accident were it collided with another B-17 "Queen Bea", at the air field. It was rebuilt using two B-17's. The front half was the original plane. And the rear half was an unpainted aluminum body. They named the plane "Arf & Arf" meaning half and half. Sadly, Arf & Arf went missing when they were flying to bomb Merseburg, Germany. There were some storm clouds, so they turned back. Over the English Channel, another plane "Bad Times Inc. II" hit Arf & Arf from below. The propllers chopped it in half. Arf & Arf was never seen again. Aaron hopes to find it someday. Wish him luck! Thank you for reading and taking time to appreciate Arnit Furr, his crew, Aaron, and Arf & Arf. Thank You.
