As a Smithsonian Affiliate, The Museum of Flight is proud to offer this exclusive screening of the Smithsonian Channel program, Memphis Belle in Color.
In January 1942, the U.S. military created a new bomber command, the Eighth Air Force, and sent a small contingent of men overseas to loosen the Nazis' grip on Europe. The command's star player was the B-17, a fast, heavily armed aircraft that changed the course of World War II. Witness them take on the mighty German Luftwaffe over enemy skies. Discover the story of how one B-17—the Memphis Belle—and its crew lifted the spirits of a nation and became a symbol of American prowess in defense of freedom.
Due to unforeseen technical difficulties, we've had to postpone tonight’s program.
