The Memphis Belle is a B-17 World War Two heavy bomber. Nicknamed the "Flying Fortress" B-17s were the primary bomber in the Allies war effort against Germany. The Belle flew from 7 November 1942 to 17 May 1943 and was the first to complete 25 missions without loss of any of her original crewmen- although the plane wasn't as fortunate and had 9 engines replaced, both wings, 2 tails and both main landing gear.
Beautiful Photo-Decór images of The Memphis Belle are available as Traditional Photo Paper prints, ready to hang mounted prints, Giclée watercolor prints & 100% canvas gallery wraps, as well as striking prints on metal.

These photos were taken at the Allegheny County Airport in Pittsburgh PA.
