A Piece Of History Lost

One of only 14 remaining airworthy Boeing B17’s known to exist crashed this morning in a corn field in Illinois. The restored “Liberty Belle” crashed shortly after take off on a scheduled flight to Indianapolis and luckily all 7 aboard were able to walk away. Unfortunately the same can not be said for the historic WWII bomber affectionately know as the “Flying Fortress”.
