The Liberty Foundations 2013 Salute to Veterans tour will be arriving in Sacramento at the Mather Field Airport ( Atlantic Aviation FBO, 10510 Suprtfortress Ave) on Monday April 22nd, 2013 at Noon for media opportunities. On display will be the famous Boeing B-17 “Memphis Belle” On its first ever west coast tour celebrating the 70th anniversary of the Memphis Belle’s historic last mission.
As our B-17 flies around town this weekend, its famous silhouette and unique sound will draw a great deal of attention. It is only through the news coverage and reporting from our media patrons that allow people to know where to come out to see and experience this ultimate history lesson. It is only through your efforts and the public’s support that we can continue to keep the B-17 on tour and from being permanently silenced to sit in a museum.
