What a shame- really

Aw man, my husband just sent me this article about the B-17 the Liberty Belle . I have several new people on my flist so let me say why this is such a shame to me. She was here last summer and along with my husband and son, we went to see her. She's a living piece of WWII history and of special interest to me as one of my novels is based on a B-17 Flying Fortress bomber- mine is called Melody Blue. The Liberty Belle and my fictional Melody Blue are the same aircraft as the Memphis Belle.

Anyway, I'm so devastated. And thankful I got to see her last summer.

She had stunning nose art work- pretty much scandalous for the era.
