hmm...

I tried googling that... didn't come up with anything at all. The Wiki page for B-17 variants... didn't see any reference to "avacs", so I've no idea. Could you explain the basics of what this variant was??

That’s the B-17 with a big rotating plexiglas dome...”Airborne Visual Acquisition Component”.

It was a precursor to the more familiar (and successful) AWACS.
