It is called the Memphis Belle, and it is in town celebrating the 71st anniversary of its last historic mission in the second world war. Several former B-17 crew members from Roanoke got the chance to take a ride on the aircraft.
The Memphis Belle will be open for public tours on Friday and for public flights on Saturday and Sunday. For more information about scheduling a flight, call Scott Maher with the Liberty Foundation at (918) 340-0243.
