The B-17G "Liberty Belle" first made a successful emergency landing near Chicago with one engine on fire, but before the fire could be extinguished, it spread to the rest of the fuselage and completely destroyed the aircraft. It is one of the few airworthy B-17 that are still in existence, and it is a great shame. The machine flew in the colors of the 390th Bombardment Group (Heavy), 13th Combat Wing, and had a J in a black square on the tail.

Fortunately, no one was seriously injured in the crash.
