This painting of a B-17 Flying Fortress, like the one flown by Capt. Shawn Jensen's grandfather 2nd Lt. Harry Burdette in World War II against Nazi Germany, displays the 379th Bombardment Group's assigned code letter K painted in a triangle on the tail of the aircraft. The 379's planes were assigned the letter K and were known as the Triangle K Group according to the 379th Air Expeditionary Wing's heritage pamphlet. Today, B-52 Stratofortress' assigned to the 379th AEW continue that tradition with a Triangle K apainted on their fuselage. (Courtesy photo-Richard Burdette/Released)
