Walkaround - Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress s/n 124485

Walkaround - Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress s/n 4124485
Carl A. Spaatz Field / Reading Regional Airport, Reading, Pennsylvania, USA.
World War II Weekend, June 4-6, 2010.

Here is a walkaround of the Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress s/n 4124485 (cn 32187), decorated as the famous DF-A Memphis Belle. Yes, the Belle should be a F model, but this one is actually a modified G model to look like her. This example is flyable, and has been attending several air shows over the last year in this livery.

I had the chance to take several photos of her during while attending the 20th WWII Weekeng at Reading, PA, and I hope they will help you see many details of this fantastic warbird.
