Historic B-17 flies above Shreveport

Aircrew members prepare a World War II era B-17G Flying Fortress for takeoff at the Shreveport Regional Airport, Shreveport, La., March 8, 2014. The aircraft was part of the Liberty Foundation’s heritage flights open to the public at Truman Arnold Companies Air this past weekend. In 1989, this aircraft was hired for use in the filming of the “Memphis Belle” movie in England. She crossed the Atlantic with another B-17 to participate in the filming of the movie.
