Post subject: "Memphis Belle" arrives at the U.S.A.F. Museum

From the USAF Museum web site:
The B-17F "Memphis Belle," the Eighth Air Force's first heavy bomber to complete 25 successful bombing missions over Europe and return to the United States, has been moved to National Museum of the U.S. Air Force at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio, under the terms of an agreement between the Memphis Belle Memorial Association and the U.S. Air Force.

The aircraft, which is currently in the Museum's Restoration hangar in Area B of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, is being prepared to undergo several years of restoration work.

Once restoration on the aircraft begins, the public will be invited to view it as part of the Museum's "Behind the Scenes" tours. Please check the website again for future announcements and updates about these tours. www.wpafb.af.mil/museum/

Thank goodness it found a proper home. It had once fallen into an abyssmal state in an unprotected park in Memphis where it had been subjected to vandalism and some stripping. At one point, it was close to being unsalvageable, even for a static exhibit.
