Memphis Belle: Inspiration

Clip: Special | 1m

Bomber names and nose art are unique to each crew. The Memphis Belle has two naming stories – the bomber may have been named after the pilot’s sweetheart, who was from Memphis, or it may have been inspired by the fictional riverboat named Memphis Belle in the movie “Lady for a Night.” Explore the history of this American icon at the Museum of the United States Air Force in Dayton.
