A long range bomber which helped Allied forces turn the tide in World War II makes a stop in Smyrna .
The Liberty Belle B-17B was built in August of 1945. It was one of more than 12,000 built and one of just 14 still flying today.
The B-17 was dubbed the "Flying Fortress" as a result of its amount of defensive firepower. The B-17 easily flew beyond the range of escort fighters into enemy territory. The average B-17 mission lasted eight hours.
The Liberty Belle will be at the Smyrna Airport this weekend. Tours of the B-17 will be available Sunday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m....
