Comments: After serving in Iraq & Afghanistan, it was decided to bring the "Belle" home. Two Boeing B-52 Stratofortresses have carried the name Memphis Belle B-52G (59-2594) was named Memphis Belle III and took part in the 1991 Gulf War. It was sent to the AMARC in October, 1992, and the first B-52H (60-0001) was named Memphis Belle IV. It is currently based at Barksdale AFB (KBAD), flying for the 2nd Bomb Wing and has seen action in both Iraq and Afghanistan.
