Tribute to the Memphis Belle

I wish other tv shows would do that from time to time. Maybe some of the youngsters could learn a little bit of history.
Mags, there is actually a Memphis Belle still flying in the Air Force- It is currently a B-52H at 2nd Bomb Wign, Barksdale AFB, LA. It's called Memphis Belle IV. I actually got a jump seat ride in her a few years ago.
