WWII B-17 "Flying Fortress" Bomber to Fly Over Erie

Posted: Updated:

Erie, PA- The "Memphis Belle", a restored WWII B-17 "flying fortress" bomber will take to the skies over Erie on Monday July 15th in advance of public flights and ground tours available on July 20-21. 

Sixty eight years ago these aircraft flew from bases far from home to defend our military missions. The  B-17 mission now is described as an effort to educate the people of America about the courageous WWII veterans, and remember those brave aircrew who never made it home.

The operators of the "Memphis Belle" say it is a living museum of our heritage not in mothballs or the pages of a dusty book, but real life, three dimensions, here and now. The public is invited to come touch the past and fly through ageless skies. July 20th-21st.

The Liberty Foundations 2013 Salute to Veterans tour will be at the Erie International Airport ( North Coast Air FBO, 4645 West 12th Street)
