Excited to fly in a bit of WWII History

I was invited to fly in the restored WWII B-17 “Flying Fortress” used in the movie “Memphis Belle”. The bomber will take to the skies over Sacramento on Monday April, 22nd with Public flights & ground tours available April 27-28)Sixty eight years ago these aircraft flew from bases far from home in an attempt to bring freedom to oppressed peoples. Our B-17 mission for today is to educate the people of America about the courageous WWII veterans, and remember those brave aircrew who never made it home. “Memphis Belle” is a living museum, our heritage not in mothballs or the pages of a dusty book, but real life, three dimensions, here and now. You are invited to come touch the past and fly through ageless skies.

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.
