Font Size Extra Large Font Size Large Font Size Default
Mephis Belle

This is your chance to see the type of aircraft flown by our service members during World War II. The Liberty Foundation will have the 'The Movie' Memphis Belle B-17 (B-17G-85-DL, AAC Serial # 44-83546), and a P-51 Mustang on display at Gillespie Field two days only, April 5 and 6. Tour the aircraft and see the conditions those brave airmen endured as they flew bombing missions over Europe. Or better, take a ride.
