Historic B-17 flies above Shreveport

The B-17G Flying Fortress “Memphis Belle” taxis at the Shreveport Regional Airport, Shreveport, La., March 8, 2014. The World War II heavy bomber was part of the Liberty Foundation’s heritage flights that were open to the public at Truman Arnold Companies Air for the weekend. This particular bomber never saw combat in World War II, but was converted and used as a transport plane. In 1989, her paint scheme was changed to look like the original and was used in the filming of the 1990 Hollywood movie “Memphis Belle.” (U.S. Air Force photo by Master Sgt. Jeff Walston)
