As soon as I read that Don I couldn't help but think those would be the least likely words to be spoken by anyone living in Axis Europe and within reach of the USAAF during WWII!

True, Garry. I should have said "In 2018."

Meanwhile, here is a shot of John Dell's table yesterday at the Paper Modelers at Army Heritage Days event here in Carlisle (initial report here: http://www.papermodelers.com/forum/629823-post15.html).

John's Memphis Belle, still under development, is in the middle of the table.

Not to veer this thread off but when I was a child (well I actually still am) we lived a few miles off the end of the active runway of Offutt AFB in Nebraska. I almost hurt my neck looking up at all the B-50's, KC-97's, B-47's, B-52's and even B-36's as well as countless others flying overhead. The 36's only visited on weekends the base was doing a display. I am sure now that there were also B-17's, they just all got lost in the never ending stream overhead. Looking back I do remember that no one complained about the noise. At that time every American was very proud of SAC and felt like putting up with the noise was just doing their part.

Can anyone wonder that I have been AerioplaneNut all my life?

My work brought me to Dayton, so I am very lucky to be close by. I also volunteer now at the Air Force museum. So it is like heaven for me.

Ever wonder what would have happened if Hell's Angels, the real first 25 mission -17 had been preserved instead of Belle. Ain't propaganda wunnerfull?

Looks like a great community there Don- I envy you surrounded by like minded folk.

And Michael, I guess the propaganda machine decided the name 'Memphis Belle' was more wholesome and palatable to the folks back home than 'Hell's Angels'.
