East Anglia...1944? Three B-17's and period costumes give the impression of East Anglia in the second half of World War II, although to be accurate Duxford was the home to the 78th Fighter Group. This picture was taken in 2008, during 'Liberty Belle's' UK tour and it's sad to think that of the three B-17's in the picture, only one remains airworthy three years later. The French operated 'Pink Lady' has been retired to a museum due to costs and lack of qualified aircrew. 'Liberty Belle' was destroyed in June 2011 after making a forced landing in a field following a mid-air fire, fortunately without loss of life. Only the furthest B-17 from the camera, 'Sally B' remains airworthy, based at Duxford in the UK.
