Memphis Belle at Air Force Museum-- Part 3

When the Memphis Belle and its 10-man crew were recalled to the United States, they were big attraction.  They went on a three-month-long war bond and morale-boosting tour.  Altogether, they made stops at 33 cities, factories and military airfields, including the one at Patterson Airfield in Dayton.

Everyone wanted their autographs.
Restoration work on the Belle began in 2005.  Persons signing up for the museum's 3-hour "Behind the Scenes Tour" offered on most Fridays can get a sneal look at it.
