B-17 Liberty Belle Destroyed by Fire in Oswego, Illionis.

Due to computer problems this week - I was unable to post this article when the news arrived. The B-17G known as the "Liberty Belle" was destroyed by fire in Oswego, Illionis; after a emergency landing in a farm field.

This news hit me kinda hard since one of my very first blog postings was about my ride on this B-17G. A total loss. But the crew and passengers were able to get out safely.
