Visitors will be able to view the interior as well as purchase a seat for a flight.

The movie “Memphis Belle” made the World War II story of the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress come alive. The nationwide tour of Memphis Belle, its mass of metal, engineering genius, along with the mental fortitude of its tens of thousands of pilots and crew members made the B-17 an icon that symbolized the courage of America 75 years ago.
