In part IV we start the look at WW2, and what better place to start than the famous Memphis Belle link

I remember seeing this in 1972 when it was displayed outside in Memphis. Am glad to see it restored.

I will be honest.

I knew Memphis Belle went home for Bond Sales, but I had not the slightest idea it still existed.

One day we can cross the Pond once more and see such treasures. Got to hand to you Yanks. Far better at preserving your heritage than this side of the Ocean.

deadhead,
Thanks, we might be a bit better at it because we have do much less of it, you have bronze-age sites older than anything here and with many layers on top of them! I have to get across to your side to soak up some of that history

I saw her several years ago in Memphis. She had been repeatedly vandalized, and unfortunately the city wasn't stepping up to protect and maintain her. So glad to see she's now restored and will be taken care of!
