Liberty Belle B-17G

June 28, 2009

This weekend the B-17G Liberty Belle was at Spirit of St. Louis Airport in Chesterfield, Missouri.  They were giving 27 minute flights for a fee and allowing people to tour it for free.  I didn't fly in it, but I did walk / crawl through it.  It is really a sight to see, I think I saw one when I was a kid, but I don't think I was ever in one.  It is really impressive when you realize that there are only fourteen B-17s still flying in the US out the 12,731 which were produced during WWII.
