The Boeing PB-1 was the US Navy designation for the B-17 Flying Fortress. 48 ex-USAAF B-17Gs were acquired by the navy during 1945, to be used for patrol and air-sea rescue missions. In order to give more warning against Japanese attacks, 32 B-17Gs were used by the Navy under the designation PB-1W, the suffix -W indicating an airborne early warning role. A large radome for an S-band AN/APS-20 search radar was fitted underneath the fuselage and additional internal fuel tanks were added for longer range. Navy Squadron VPB-101 received its first PB-1 (without radar) in September 1945, the month after Japan had surrendered, and its first radar equipped PB-1W in January 1946. PB-1Ws continued in USN service until 1955.
