This Week In Military/Aviation History 28 July – 3 August

July 29, 2008 10:15 pm

Hello Folks, well not only has another week flown by, but a month is about to fade into history. It amazes me how quickly they do go by. If you pick up the September issue of Air Classics, you will see the is a short article written by Aviation Artist and 1941 Historical Aircraft Group’s Air Show Coordinator Frank H. Schaufler concerning the change in the nose art on the late Dave Tallichet’s B-17 “Memphis Belle,” now known as “The Movie Memphis Belle.” It was decided to change the nose art to stop a problem with the Air Force Museum concerning “possible confusion” between the original “Memphis Belle” and Mr. Tallichet’s “Belle.” For some reason it became unacceptable to have one flying and one being restored. Frank won the contract to stylize the nose art more in keeping with the nose art used in the movie “Memphis Belle.” At first both beauties had red nighties in keeping with the movie version, (blue apparently did not register as well as red), but the starboard Beauty now sports a blue nightie. This is closer to historical as the original “Belle” had her port Beauty in blue and her starboard in red. Reversed, stylized, renamed, this aircraft is still a fitting tribute to the historical aircraft being restored and the crew that flew her. Now, let’s get down to some serious history, shall we?
