The plane known as “Memphis Belle” is on display at the Renton Municipal Airport next weekend. A group called The Liberty Foundation is touring with the plane and a P-51 Mustang fighter.
The “Memphis Belle” was built toward the end of the war and the Boeing airplane never saw combat. It is painted to look like its predecessors with the same name that flew with the 91st bomb group.
The Liberty Foundation considers itself a flying museum and sells flights on the historic planes to pay its expenses.
