MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Sixty-five years ago B-17 flying fortress bombers flew the skies of Europe during World War II. On Memorial Day, a restored bomber called the Liberty Belle is in the Twin Cities. Watch as photojournalist Dave Bissonette got the opportunity to see what the bomber looks from the outside and from the sky.

    i thought I heard the sound of 4 Recips taking off this morning. Wish I had known, thought it was back in the 60’s when these things were still flown along with the K-97’s and other great aircraft.

    There is one that flies into Rochester and we’ve visited that one. I don’t remember if this plane is the same one though. They are super cool and a great hands-on history lessons for kids.

    I saw this plane over Saint Paul on Memorial Day. It just crashed and burned today in Illinois! Everyone was able to walk away though. Sad incident – it was a neat plane.
