Built by Boeing at Seattle. Assigned to the 19th Bombardment Group.
On December 8, 1941 at 1200 hours, this B-17 was destroyed on the ground at Clark Field by Japanese bombing.
When the area was occupied by the Japanese, this wreckage was captured by the Japanese and possibly parts of this B-17 were used to repair B-17D 40-3095.
