Description

A piece of World War II history is tucked neatly away under a pavilion on Mud Island. The famous bomber, dubbed the "Memphis Belle" in honor of the pilot's girlfriend, successfully completed 25 missions and was the subject of a Hollywood movie. It is a favorite attraction for former Army Air corpsmen, history buffs and airplane enthusiasts. The exhibit is included with admission to Mud Island, which includes the River Museum and River Walk, a scale replica of the Mississippi River you can dip your toes into.
