OT: B-17 Liberty Belle. Forced landing and burned. No serious injuries.

That's so sad. I'm glad everyone is okay though. I managed to take a few pics of the Liberty Belle when she was at the warbird museum at KADS last year. That was one magnificent looking plane. Never forget watching it fly around north Dallas and imagining a whole bomber wing flying off to pound the germans.

Liberty Belle

 

I went through it at an airshow several years ago. Number 2 engine caught fire and they landed in a field.

 

Glad all are ok, but very very sad. There are so few of our mighty bombers flying anymore.

Goldy-

 

She was the B-17 that was doing the Compton bombing runs during the PHPA meeting in March ...

 

(BTW, the image is almost the exact spot at BUR where SWA 1455/N668SW was "parked" after her of-airport excursion to the local Chevron station. Weird coincidence).
