This weekend a B-17 will return to the skies over Charleston.
The World War II-era Liberty Belle will be offering $430 30-minute plane rides on Saturday and Sunday, giving folks a chance to live (or re-live) a bit of American history.
The plane is the namesake of a B-17 that was nearly lost during a disastrous bombing run over Germany in which a 1,000-pound bomb exploded as it was released from the bomber, and destroyed many nearby bombers.
But if you just want high-quality info, photos, and videos on the plane, hop on over to their Web site.
Of the 12,732 B-17s created, fewer than 100 frames of the aircraft still exist today, and only some 15 can still fly.
