Flying high in the Liberty Belle

Editor’s Note: This post was delayed due to the photo gallery I created. It simply took longer than expected.


On Monday I flew high above Wichita, Kan., in a WWII-era B-17 bomber called the Liberty Belle.

It was a press flight to help promote the fact the historic plane was going to be in Wichita this weekend at Jabara Airport.

I was there with The McPherson (Kan.) Sentinel, and it was an amazing experience.

While being in that plane, I really got an idea of what it must have been like for the brave souls who fought in WWII and manned those planes, which are refereed to as “flying fortresses.”

Again, it was very cool to be able to experience it, and I hope you all enjoy my photos.
