It’s not the famous “Memphis Belle”

As I understand it, the celebrated B-17 called the “Memphis Belle” is at the Museum of the Air Force in Dayton, Ohio.

The plane available for rides in Spokane later this week played the “Memphis Belle” in a 1990 movie.

There's a difference.

The ad touting the opportunity to ride in a Flying Fortress acknowledges this, but in a whispering way.

Here's a picture of the real thing.

About the “Memphis Belle”…

Both the 1990 movie and the history-making bomber have connections to Spokane. Can you name them?
