Click Photos to Enlarge

The Liberty Foundation conducts an annual Salute to Veterans Tour with their B-17G Flying Fortress.  After a fire destroyed Liberty Belle in 2011, they flew the "B-17F" The Movie Memphis Belle. The aircraft was a B-17G modified to a B-17F for using in making the movie. The configuration change was accomplished by removing the B-17G's chin turret.  These photos were taken during their stop at the Jim Hamilton - L.B. Owens Airport (KCUB) in Columbia, SC.
