Memphis Belle  --  The pilot of the aircraft, Bob Morgan, originally intended to call her Little One, after his pet name for his fiancee, Margaret Polk. However, fate intervened when the crew caught a film starring John Wayne and Joan Blondell called Lady for a Night. Blondell's character was nicknamed Memphis Belle and, as the crew clearly enjoyed the film and Morgan had close links with the state capital, the name Little One was replaced by Memphis Belle.

Memphis Belle, a B-17 World War Two bomber, is undergoing a major restoration project at the National Museum of the United States Air Force.  The Memphis Belle was kept in Memphis, Tennessee, for around 60 years before being transported to the museum in Dayton, Ohio, for restoration. This work on the historic bomber began ten years ago, and it’s expected to take another two and a half years before it will be completed.

Memphis Belle. There was some initial disagreement about the choice of name for this plane amongst the crew. Whether you are superstitious or not, you could say it was a good choice. Are all the Belles in Memphis like this?  rjp
