The other side of 'Sally B (aka 'Memphis Belle'), Duxford, Cambridgeshire, England.

She was delivered to the United States Army Air Force (USAAF) on 19 June 1945 as 44-85784; after being converted to both a TB-17G and then an EB-17G, she was struck off charge in 1954. She was later bought by the Institut Géographique National in France for use as a survey aircraft. In 1975 she moved to England to be restored to wartime condition as a memorial to the USAAF B-17 airmen who lost their lives in the European theatre. The Sally B was first fitted with accurate gun turrets and other much needed additions for her role as 'Ginger Rogers', a B-17 bomber of the fictitious bomber unit featured in the 1981 British TV series 'We'll Meet Again'.

Thanks for all the C&Cs on '59'.

Best wishes,
Philip
