Memphis Belle Gets a Facelift

Memphis Belle Gets a Facelift

A new look has been bestowed upon the Memphis Belle (The Movie), the B-17 Flying Fortress used as the platform for the 1990 movie Memphis Belle, a fictionalized depiction of the airplane’s final mission.

The B-17 is still in service and is operated by the Liberty Foundation, which uses the airplane to educate the public about the airplane and the conditions the bomber crews were subjected to. The foundation also offers rides in the airplane, which is one of only a few remaining airworthy B-17s out of more than 12,700 built. This year, the Memphis Belle (The Movie) is scheduled to visit 48 cities around the country.
