I'm sure, I thoroughly vetted the story and she is the real one.  A survivor of WW II combat, a survivor of stateside war bond drives, a survivor of a post-war reclamation center, a survivor of open air public display and vandalism.  She is now returned to her former glory.  The B-17G that was modified to look like a B-17F and painted as the Memphis Belle for the 1990 movie by the same name is still around.  Now referred to as "The Movie Memphis Belle", she is located at the National Warplane Museum in Geneseo, NY.  For enough money, you can go for a flight on The Movie Memphis Belle.

Great to see her in all her original beauty. To bad her crew are no longer around to see her now.
