    This weekend, the B-17 "Liberty Belle" will be at Cavanaugh Flight Museum in Addison...I dunno what times they're gonna be taking off (Sat and Sun flights...I'll be goin probably on Saturday), but I plan on bein there for at least one of them! Can't afford to fly in her, but I can at least drool from the ground and take lots of pics.

    Anyone else in the DFW area plannin on goin?

    Tell you what RA.....

    I know we missed out on meeting up at the Alliance air show. If I stay in town, I'll let you know and I'll go out there. Hopefully we could go at the same time. Thanks for posting this. I would never have known.

    Yeh I posted a video from channel 8 on the Liberty Belle on another thread. They took up a B-17 pilot, it was quite moving. Some good shots from inside and out.
