B-17G of 457th Bombardment Group

Here we see a late production B-17G in flight during a post-war flight. The serial number starting in 339 suggests that this is a block 100 to block 110 aircraft. The letter 'U' in a triangle identifies it as an aircraft of the 457th Bombardment Group, 1st Air Division.
