B-17G “Miss Liberty Belle” has been on outdoor display at the Grissom Air Museum in Indiana since 1961.  It will soon be moved indoors to the Museum of Aviation in Georgia.  The B-17 is scheduled to be moved in August 2015.  The restoration will be carried out while the aircraft is on display, similar to the restoration of B-17G  “City of Savannah” at the Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum in Savannah, Georgia.
