For 2009 As of 2009, the top 5 most popular sports icons in the world are as follows: . Tiger Woods . Roger Federer . Yao Ming . Michael Phelps . David Beckham The list is made from an average of many lists (basically, the average for most popular athlete in the world). Obviously, popularit…y changes very often. Thus, this list will change from year to year, possibly even month to month depending on how the athletes are doing. The below answer is based from before 2009, and will not be as up-to-date. . David Beckham (World Soccer) - 4 votes Without doubt, England captain David Beckham. He is the most searched for sports personality on the Internet and the most recognized non-politician in the world. Ask anyone in any soccer-playing country in the world - ie 99.9% of countries - for their heroes, and Beckham comes close to the top (especially with women...) . Michael Jordan (Basketball, USA) - 3 votes; spokesman for Nike and McDonald's, worldwide brands. . Tiger Woods (Golf, USA) - 2 votes :: George Foreman (Boxing, USA) - owns grilling machine brand. :: Muhammed Ali (Boxing, USA) . Ronaldo (World Soccer) . Michael Schumacher (Formula One) :: Roger Federder (Tennis) :: Wayne Gretzky (Hockey) - "the great one" . Usain Bolt (Track and Field) . I think it has to be Muhammad Ali. Beckham's fame and popularity is fading. I doubt if many people in the States would pick Schumacher out of a lineup. (MORE)

B-17 is an American bomber (flying fortress). The Germans had other models of aircrafts. Of the American B-17s, the Memphis Belle is the most famous, the first to survive twenty-five bombing missions. American fighter pilots were required to fly fifty missions, and American bomber crews were requir…ed to fly twenty-five. Many B-17s crash landed in German held territory. So the Germans had several captured B-17s. These were used for training German pilots. Allied pilots reported seeing unmarked B-17s shadowing bomber formations just out of range of the allied guns. These were believed to crewed by Luftwaffe personnel. The mission requirements for bomber crews was raised from 25 to 30 as the war progressed and experienced crews were needed to continue the air offensive against Germany. Fighter pilots mission requirements were measured in "combat hours". The requirement being set at 200 combat hours.
