    I got some information regarding the Memphis Bell. The aircraft has been on display in Memphis, Tennessee since 1946 and will soon be moved. "Air Force officials announced plans to relocate the World War II B-17 "Memphis Belle" to the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force near Dayton, Ohio today. No date has been set, but the move is expected to occur before the end of the year in conjunction with activities planned to observe the 60th anniversary of the end of World War II." Its good to know the aircraft will be at the Dayton facility, along with a many other one-of-a-kind aircraft.

    Thanks for the info Ashrunner, I'm not far from it and I've never seen it..... but I will BEFORE it leaves. You never know what you miss until it is gone.
    Thanks again!
