Tragedy strikes again!

News from the US came that Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress "Liberty Belle", which visited the UK in 2008 and took part in the Flying Legends Airshow, has crashed landed and burnt to a near total loss. Suffering what appeared to be an engine fire, the pilot managed to land in field safely and all seven on board escaped before the inferno engulfed the aircraft. It is a damaging loss to the US Warbird circuit. Liberty Foundation currently have a second B-17 under restoration to fly.
