I was saddened by the news that the Liberty Belle, a B-17 Flying Fortress was no more. The plane had a fire onboard and was able to land safely in a corn field outside Aurora, IL. Due to wet conditions, the town’s firetrucks were not able to drive out into the field to save the plane, and everyone watched it slowly burn to the ground.

I was fortunate enough to have visited and photographed the Liberty Belle back in July of 2009 during a stop on it’s tour at Lawrence Municipal Airport in Lawrence, MA.

The above photo was taken just after a rain storm. The color photo was great but I thought some sepia processing did it justice.

While I was there, I shot a 360 degree panoramic of the nose turret.

There were many signatures inside the plane, from World War II veterans who had a chance to revisit their past. They signed areas where they worked on the B-17’s during the war. There were signatures on the ceiling, doors, walls and tables.  The most signatures were on the inside of the exterior doors, from veterans who weren’t mobile enough to climb through the planes anymore.  I think that they were happy just seeing and touching a B-17 again.

Liberty Belle, you’ll be missed, but not forgotten.
