B-17G "Liberty Belle" Makes Stop at Spirit of St. Louis Airport

The Liberty Belle Foundation brought their B-17G "Liberty Belle" to Spirit of St. Louis Airport this weekend to provide an opportunity for local residents to see and ride this historic aircraft. The aircraft was parked at the Million Air ramp, and the public was invited to tour the aircraft, and flights in the aircraft were provided to paying customers. The aircraft will continue on its national tour after this weekend, with the next stop in Springfield, MO in the coming days. Visit http://www.libertyfoundation.org/index.html for further information.
