The Liberty Foundation supports and tours this fine relic of WWII to selected cities around the US. I have been fortunate to see her in action the last two years when she visited Hillsboro, Oregon.

BAD NEWS!!! This fine piece of American history made a forced landing in a field and burned Monday 06/13/2011 near Chicago! The fire trucks could not reach her due to recent rains and the crew had to watch her burn! All seven aboard escaped with only minor injuries.
