England: At RAF Duxford I see the famous B17 Memphis Belle, Whether it's the original or one of the B17's they used in the movie I'm not sure.

Mom says that this is one of the replicas used in the movie. The original is undergoing restoration at the National Museum of the US Air Force In Ohio. :)

Anita: Yes, all pix show are by me. No I haven't flown in these such planes - the Piper Warrior you referred to is a fairly modern two seat single turbo prop owned by a friend.
The movie is called 'Memphis Bell', which is about the original of the plane shown in the photo plus the crew who flew in it and survived the missions over Germany in WW11.

Maggie Mae: Thanks for filling in the gaps with that useful piece of info....!
