I think, she (the Plane) looks very weary. Not war-weary, but weary. But not so the woman on Pic 102. She looks beautiful. 😉

DX*F "Memphis Belle" looked weary when I saw her up close 20 years ago. She hasn't changed much, unlike me...

Beautiful pics, the last time I saw the Belle I was on my way from NTTC Millington/NAS Memphis to NS Mayport and the USS Saratoga back in 1979. At that time she was a neglected basket case. At that time all the plexiglass had frosted white and her paint, well calling it OD green would have been stretching the truth a little.

Great pictures! Thanks for sharing! For those who are interested, the original Memphis Belle is being restored at the US Air Force Museum:

HCS-5, the Belle you saw was the original.

Sometimes, I think, I live in the wrong country or on wrong continent. In Germany/Europe, we have some very nice Landscapes, some old fortress or some old towns. Our museums are full of antique thinks, but such nice planes, we haven´t so much good museums, like in the USA.

We do have some nice museums. The National Museum of the USAF is fantastic. Here are a few more:
Udvar-Hazy Museum, Dulles Airport Virginia | Album by Navy Bird
Planes of Fame Museum, Chino California USA | Album by Navy Bird
And one in Canada:
Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, Hamilton, Ontario | Album by Navy Bird
I'm about to upload some photos from the USAF Air Mobility Command Museum at Dover AFB, so stay tuned!
