Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress 44-83546 ‘Movie Memphis Belle’ will be offering passenger rides under the FAA’s new Living History Flight Experience Program this year.
This aircraft – which appeared in the film ‘Memphis Belle’ – was lovingly restored by David Tallichet to resemble the original ‘Belle’ (which is itself being restored to static display standard in Dayton, Ohio) and has delighted crowds at airshows and reunion events since the late 1970s.
Flying out of Kissimmee, Florida’s Warbird Adventures for the Spring of 2018, passengers will experience a taste of history – the churning propellers and roaring radial engines that dominated the skies over Europe and the Pacific theatre during World War Two. Ten individuals at a time can share this remarkable experience. The aircraft arrived in Kissimmee on February 28. For more information visit: NationalWarplaneMuseum.com or WarbirdAdventures.com
