Liberty Belle flies

Last month, the “Liberty Belle” became the 14th B-17 Flying Fortress to return to the skies. That’s right, there are only fourteen of these classic air warriors in the entire world stil flying. For the kiddies who aren’t getting taught authentic American history in school any more, this was the bomber that helped win the war in Europe during World War II.
