Memphis Belle Unveiling
Recently EAA staff attended the opening of the B-17F Memphis Belle exhibit, which honored the first heavy bomber aircraft and crew to complete 25 missions during WWII. It was acquired by the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force in 2005.
If you love warbirds, and if you appreciate seeing rare or, in many cases, truly unique airplanes doing what they were meant to do — fly — then you owe yourself a visit to Chino and the Planes of Fame Air Museum.
