A little over a month ago we told you about the World War II Air Force Bomber ‘Memphis Belle‘ and that it will be put on public display at the National Museum of the US Air Force beginning in May 2018.
Well, before going on public display you need to look your best and the same applies for the most famous bomber ever so it is undergoing some major rework and restoration at the museum located at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton, Ohio.
