The Boeing B-17 was the best-known heavily-armed strategic bomber of WWII.  The Boeing B-17F was the first mass-produced "Flying Fortress", and the most famous plane of this series was the B-17F-10-BO, which was put into service with 324 Bomber Squadron, 91 Bomber Group in England. The crew gave it the nickname "Memphis Belle" after the lady-friend of the pilot Lt. Robert K. Morgan. Its fame resulted from the fact that it was officially the first US Army Air Force bomber in Europe to survive 25 missions, and it was later made the star of a Hollywood propaganda film. After the 25th mission the Memphis Belle and its crew were ordered back to the USA. Later it was bought by the city of Memphis and set up as a memorial in the open air. In 2004 the B-17F underwent a complete restoration. Today the Memphis Belle is again accessible to the public.
