Postage Stamp 1:155 Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress: Liberty Belle
$29.95

The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress is a four engine propeller driven heavy bomber, used during World War II by the United States Army Air Forces and the Royal Air Force.  The B-17G is differentiated by its heavy duty armor and additional armaments over previous aircraft.  With an ability to take heavy damage and still return home, the stories and photos which circulated helped to add to the B-17’s iconic status. 

Liberty Belle was a popular name for United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) aircraft during World War II; over two dozen known individual Boeing B-17 Flying Fortresses and Consolidated B-24 Liberators used the name.

The combat Liberty Belles were commemorated by two B-17s which used the name, with one still remaining as a static display: Miss Liberty Belle (USAAF serial 44-83690) is displayed at the Grissom Air Museum. The Liberty Foundation flew a composite B-17 named Liberty Belle (constructed from two damaged aircraft (sn. 44-85734 and the rear part of sn. 44-85813)) as a warbird from 2004 until 2011, when it was destroyed in a fire after an emergency landing. It is currently under rebuild at the Brooks Aviation Center in Douglas, Georgia.
